Jupiter and Europa on 7/3/08

I got this shot before my telescope fell. I used eyepiece projection to get the high magnification. Europa is the moon to the left and Gannymede should be visible, but was washed out by the brightness of the planet. I could be wrong, but I believe the Great Red Spot is starting to disappear on the bottom right of the planet. I have yet to get an image of the spot (unless, of course, this is it). I’d like to get one where it’s right in the middle and unmistakable.
