Jupiter Io Europa Ganymede
Observing location
Tooleys Boatyard, Banbury
C9.25 telescope
2.5x Powermate
ZWO ASI120MC-S camera
2000 frames stacked, 10ms exposure

Another go at a familiar target.  Suspect the gain was too high on the camera.  First attempt at using a ZWO atmospheric dispersion compensator.  Had to move fast on this, a long Windows 10 update delayed things and Europa was about to vanish behind Jupiter!
