Very clear skies and few mosquitoes last night made for a great night out with my telescope.  I took pictures of the full moon.  I made a collage of the 4 best pictures from the past week, showing the moon waxing from quarter to full.
 
I also viewed Jupiter and its 4 Galilean moons.  Io and Ganymede were very close to each other.  Callisto was pretty far off on the same side.  Europa was by itself on the other side.  I spotted the Northern and Southern Equatorial belts. 
 
I tried to do a little star hopping to look for some other objects, but the full moon made that pretty impossible.  I love asterisms and open clusters, and wanted to observe the Coathanger for the first time, but there was too much light!
