This certainly isn't the best piece of astrophotographic work you'll ever see, by a long chalk, but it shows just what is possible with a relatively small level of magnification. The bright object in the centre of the image is Jupiter - by far the brightest body in our skies just now. Immediately beside it, at the four o'clock position is one of its moons, while at ten o'clock two moons are visible.

Olympus E-3; Zuiko 50-200mm@200mm with 1.4x Zuiko teleconverter (283mm); ISO 400; f4.9; 1s.
