Day 128. Jupiters moons from my garden

I didn’t think you could take a picture of Jupiter’s moons from your garden with a DSLR and no telescope… but you can. Its not great I admit, but you can see the 4 Galilean moons – Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. They are less than 5000 kilometres across and somewhere between 630 and 930 million km away. And I think thats pretty cool.
