Bought an 8 inch Dobsonian several months ago and just now getting to use it.  Turned on Jupiter tonight and could only see two moons.  Found out I need to adjust the EZ finder II with the red dot, so will do that tomorrow in the daylight.  Used the 28 mm eyepiece.  May try the 10 mm tomorrow night.  Also came with 2 X Barrow lens.  I am completely new to this but anxious to learn a little before my grandsons (5 and 7) spend the night and want to look.  Any help would be appreciated.

Did you check Stellariam, may be that 2 moons were behind Jupiter at the time of viewing. All 4 moons are not always visible for this reason.
