500PF does Jupiter
14

Coming home from the wildlife refuge today I saw a bright dot in the sky from the apartment complex parking lot. I took a picture with the D500 / 500PF + 1.4x, and got the following (enlarged beyond 1:1)

Jupiter and the Galilean moons

(1/250, f/8, ISO 500, 700mm)

Putting the time and place into virtual planetarium software, this is indeed the orientation of Jupiter and the four brightest moons seen by Galileo:
