Watching Jupiter, its Galilean moons and Saturn!

Jorge Martínez Garrido

Last night I tried to watch both Jupiter and Saturn through my old telescope, which many amateur astronomers would claim it to be a “kids scope”. Despite the low quality of my equipment, I was surprised after watching Jupiter and its main moons together with Saturn and its rings. This posts includes some some drawings I made so you can better understand what exactly I saw.
