Best I could do hand held. Are those some of Jupiter's moons?

Impressive, especially hand-held.

No luck where I am; all cloudy.

99.5% confident those are two of Jupiter's moons. Nice shot.

Nice for handheld. Yes those are Jupiter's moons -- there were 4 visible, but easier to see with a tripod.

Went back through my exposures and found this, the sharpest with yet some noise moderation. Tweaked for noise in LR then only Topaz DeNoise in PS.

First try (Canon DSLR left on Program, 30-second handheld exposure, oops – space dragon!). Then a manual 1/60 handheld, max zoom. Got the planets but not moons or rings. Lots of stars though (or sensor dust-!).
