I used my Meade 10 Classic + 1.6x barlow and the camera was the Sony A7s in Full Frame mode.
30 ARW pictures (1/40s, ISO 2000) were taken in a row within a few seconds. They were converted to TIFF with Sony RAW converter. Alignment and processing was done in RegiStax6.
The picture have been enlightened with gamma but the 4 aligned satellites have kept their relative brightness. Only Jupiter using the R6 Gamma-Mask function has not been modified.
The name of the satellites are visible in the accompanying image captured from Stellarium ...
Note that Callisto (bottom left) is very hard to see from background ! Dont forget to click on image to have it full size !
