Hi, I recently got a Celestron G-3 and got my first view of Jupiter on 1/19 at about 8:30PM Pacific Time. I only saw three moons, does anyone know how to find out which moons are occluded by Jupiter? My guess is that it was Io, but it's just that, a guess. Also, what do you think would be the best set-up for planetary viewing? From what I've read here, probably a 2X Barlow with a longer eyepiece, but who makes a high quality Barlow? Thanks P.S. My name's Jacob, but no matter what I do this thing says I'm "Morgan"???
