Jupiter, Io, Ganymede, and Europa 1-1-16

I couldn't contain myself New Years Eve and did a bit of backyard telescoping during the celebrations. With wine bottle in hand, the Wife and I set up the Telescope and listened to the symphony of celebrations being orchestrated  in and around our neighborhood. The seeing in the Coachella Valley was not in my favor, and the fireworks and waning gibbous Moon offered no real help either, but I did manage to photograph a half way decent shot of Jupiter and 3 of its moons. I hope everyone has a fantastic New Years, and cheers to 2016 in the Coachella  Valley!

Equipment used was a Celestron Nexstar 6SE, a Philips spc900nc webcam and a 2x barlow
