Image Jupiter to track the positions of the Galilean moons.
I am mentoring two high school students on a project where they need to determine the period and relative radius of the orbits.
I would like to have images spanning 2 months. 3 images a night, 2 hrs or more apart.
One shot in V just long enough to be able see the 4 moons; image of Jupiter can be washed out. 10 seconds on a BSM?

Target RA (H.HH) Dec (D.DD) Magnitude Telescope Observation Frequency Expiration Date Proprietary Term
Jupiter 1.000000 1.00000 9.0–5.0 No
