I was just looking through my observing notes to see if I have seen Triton the moon of Neptune when I stumbled on a note I made a long time ago detailing what moons I have seen, all of these in my 16" dob.


 


Mars:- No moons seen


Saturn: - Titan, Enceladus, Rhea, Dione, Mimas, Lapetus, Thethys, and Hyperion


Jupiter:- Europa, Io, Ganymede, and Calistro


Uranus:- Titania, and Oberon


Neptune:- Triton


 


So 15 moons in total.


 


How many have you guys seen.

You are doing well Martin!

i did see this post of Micks sooner, but don't have too much to contribute...

 

i have only seen the Galilean moons, + Titan, Tethys, Rhea and Dione. I think I got a glimpse Enceladus too. So that's 9, but

my bucket list is growing nicely!

 

I get so many ideas from this forum. What to look at...  what to spend my money on! :)

So much to do, so few chances to do it it seems... 

cheers!

I've seen 9: 4 of Saturn's 4 of Jupiter's plus one of ours. I've got some plans to catch Jupiter's on "film" and maybe Titan. I've got the DSLR to try it.
