In this telescopic picture, the nearest satellite moon and Jupiter with its three moons could be saw clearly. The three satellites in turn: Callisto, Ganymede, and Europa.(Io is too close to Jupiter) This photo is composed of a short time exposure photo and a long time exposure photo.

Moon Meets Aldebaran
I take this image at about 10:07 PM (about 2 minutes before moon hid the star) on Jan 9th 2017 local time Beijing, China, using my 6D camera and FS 60cb telescope with 1.7x lens. I composed two pictures with different exposure time. After about 2 minutes, moon occlusion the red Aldebaran.

Down of the moon could be see from the composed image. I took the images in Beijing, China, using my Takahashi FS60CB telescope with 2X lens and Canon 6D camera.
Red Aldebaran beside Super Moon
I take this image at about 11:46 PM on November 15th 2016 local time Beijing, China, using my 6D camera and FS 60cb telescope with 1.7x lens. I composed two pictures with different exposure time. In fact the super moon is large and bright indeed. After about 50 minutes, moon occlusion the red Aldebaran. The white bright cirle around the moon may be due to a thin cloud in the sky. In addtion Aldebaran, some stars from the Taurus open cluster clude be seen at up-right side.
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Rising
I take this picture after sunset in the Jing Shan Park, which is in the central of Beijing, China on 2016 March 24th. In this image, a round moon is rising from the back of the city building. The moon is different from other time, because it is a penumbral lunar eclipse. I take one image every 2 minutes 10 seconds. Because, the mon walks one diameter of itself every about 2 minutes 10 seconds. It is dark at the down-right side of the moon but it is not obvious.
