    Sweet. Those two dots orbiting - are those moons, or is that just a visible part of Jupiter’s ring? Not many people realize Jupiter actually has rings, just not as prominently as Saturn. Or your anus.

    This is an awesome shot. Where do you live because I wanted to get a telescope but I live near NYC and light pollution is an issue here :(

    Definitely moons. You can't see the rings from here.

    Thanks. I have a ton of light pollution. You can still do it.

    I think this was just out of focus. It is so hard to nail the focus:

    Are you sure they aren’t just the edge of the rings? They appear to be equidistant from the planet. That would be odd for moons.
