: 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

Software such as Starry Night will show you position of Jupiter's moons for whatever time and date you like. Sky and Telescope magazine has charts every month to show positions of moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

Clear Skies

: P.S. My name's Jacob, but no matter what I do this thing : says I'm "Morgan"???
