In my latest planetary project, I have captured Jupiter along with two of its moons, Europa & Ganymede for around 45 minutes.
I have selected nine of the images in which ๐’ข๐‘…๐’ฎ (๐’ข๐“‡๐‘’๐’ถ๐“‰ ๐‘…๐‘’๐’น ๐’ฎ๐“…๐‘œ๐“‰) is clearly visible. In each image, Europa (Left) and Ganymede (Right) is vividly visible.
By scanning image to image, from the movement of GRS, the rotation of Jupiter can easily be recognized.
In the first image of this series, Europa was seen at a distance from Jupiter. With the progression of time, the Europa approached near Jupiter and eventually it started transiting the gas giant.
