My first time to see Jupiter was when my husband and I bought our first 6" reflector telescope.  He lined it up on Jupiter and told me that he could see its moons.  I thought he was joking, but when I looked through the eyepiece he was right!  Planetary astrophotography is very difficult for me.  I haven't mastered it.  Maybe I never will.  But I will always find the views of our planets magical!

Below is Jupiter with its four biggest moons, Europa, Io, Ganymede and Callisto.

This image shows the moons that you see:
