Jupiters moons?

Postby teslar » Sun Jan 15, 2017 6:54 pm

Hi All. Just had a "discussion" online about whether it was possible for an amateur astronomer to capture in a photograph six moons with Jupiter. I'm certain I saw a photo on here a while back with six little jewels spread out in a line. It might even have been Dion who took it. Anyhoo I happened to mention I thought it was possible only to be told in a fairly strong way by several people that it was impossible because only Four moons were large enough to capture.

So was I imagining things when I could swear a photograph with six moons was posted here?
