The images shown here represent some of the better ones done by complete amateur using very basic equipment - a Celestron NexStar 6SE, a cheap Philips SPC900NC webcam, together with wxAstroCapture, AutoStakkert!2 and Registax software.  It is a big learning curve but well worth as I hope that this will inspire others to persist.  Some of the images were produced with different filters and the orientation reflects to angle the webcam was inserted - until I realised that it could be corrected before I imaged!  Look towards the sides of Jupiter or the edges of the images to see the various satellites.
