HX100v, Jupiter and its Gallilean moons

I noticed that one night a month, at least this time of year, the near full, but waning moon is in very close proximity to Jupiter. This allowed me to take my HX100v, zoom in on the moon, then shift the camera quickly to the left where I find Jupiter and "click" and "Voila!" It's not a great shot, but to paraphrase Samuel Johnson, "Sir, To take a handheld picture of Jupiter and its Gallilean moons is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all."
