Jupiter with Io on 8/12/09 with 20.5″ Cassegrain at the Clarence T. Jones Observatory

Okay, this image is from last month, but I just got around to process it. Due to the kindness of Bobby Thompson from the Barnard Astronomical Society, last month, I was able to use the Clarence T. Jones 20.5″ Cassegrain telescope to take this shot of Jupiter and Io. My camera is not a good match for the scope and we had difficulty focusing accurately, but it was a lot of fun. This is much more detail than I normally see through my scope.
