I've assembled this gallery of the best images I've been able to obtain of moons in our Solar System. I may expand it over time to include planets & asteroids. Enjoy!

Mars System

Phobos & Company, 2022-12-03

Mars, Phobos, and possibly Deimos. After 10 years of trying, I think I only managed to image these moons because I accidentally had the red channel gain on my ZWO ASI178MC dialed way down. 203mm Meade LightSwitch with a micro-focuser.

Jupiter System

Io's Shadow 2015-04-04

Io and its shadow on Jupiter! Plus Europa & Ganymede. Recorded with a Skyris 445C imager atop a 254mm Orion XT10 Reflector and stacked with Registax. The moons and Jupiter have been brightened separately, with Acorn on macOS, so that both can be seen.

Jupiter's moons 2016-04-20

Ganymede, Io, Jupiter, Europa & Callisto thru a modified Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 atop a NexStar 102SLT refractor. Not a lot of detail, but still a personal favorite of mine.
