I missed out on capturing any disc detail last night but managed to get all 4 Galilean moons in one frame:

Yes, I find the changing positions rather fascinating but it's not often that all four Galilean moons are clealry visible at any one time. Quite often a moon passes in fron of or behind the planet or gets really close and needs high magnification.
