11:43 pm - That's no moon, that's ... oh wait.
The moon was very clear and bright tonight :

And so was Jupiter (and probably Callisto and Io to the left, Europa/Ganymede are the blob to the right) :

(all taken with a 300mm/4.5 lens with cheap-ish 2x teleconverter. Exposures and ISO varied randomly until something looked reasonably good ... )

Jupiter is fabulous to view at the moment - very nice pics, thank you!

That's marvellous! Can't quite see the scar where the meteor hit it in July, but they did say that would probably wear off...

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but on second and third picture you are most likely see internal reflections inside you telescope+convertor. Jupiter moons are much smaller in relation to the planet.
