This is amazing, but Jupiter upside down is not good for astronomy.

This is absolutely amazing; I cannot believe that you can actually see details on the satellites, in addition to noticing the difference in sizes!! Phenomenal image.

Is the upside down because you can only see inverted through the eyepiece of a reflector telescope? Anyway the image is simply awesome.
