Astrophoto: Jupiter by Ray Gilchrist

[/caption]
Ray Gilchrist captured this photo of planet Jupiter from Barrow in Furness, Cumbria on October 27, 2011. The photo also shows the two of Jupiter’s largest moons, Io and Ganymede.

Ray used a Skywatcher 200p, EQ5 and a Canon350D camera. He also provided us with a few technical specs: 1/125 sec exposure, ISO 1600.
