Planet Lineup

Here is this weekend's planet lineup at the same image scale. I included Uranus this time, though there is really not much to see there. At the extreme left corner of the frame, Callisto (a moon of Jupiter) is visible.

Jupiter was about 23° above the horizon when it was imaged. That is much lower than it got overnight, but I wanted to include the Great Red Spot.
