Taken with my newly acquired 100-400. Looks like I'm going to have to buy that 800 + stacking TC's if I want to get better Jupiter photos. :lol: I tried.

Haha, yeah, info's on the photo. If you're wondering about the moon, I actually used the same exact settings for the moon shot as well. Obviously at 1/400s I lost Jupiter's moons, but in the VF, I was able to make out 2 of its moons. I'll make another attempt probably tonight to see if I can get its orbiters but I expect I'll end up losing the detail and Jupiter itself will just be a big white dot. Hopefully there will be 2-3 or 4 additional little dots though. :)

Tonight's efforts yielded this:

Composite of two photos taken seconds apart. One to expose for Jupiter, the other to expose for its moons.

Shooting the moon and Jupiter at the same exposures is something I hadn't thought of, but it makes sense. I've had much trouble getting good exposures for Jupiter. It's large enough in the image taken by my 300mm on a crop sensor, that I thought I should get at least some subtle banding, but haven't seen any yet. I'm going to have to try that this weekend.
