Yes,those would be Jupiters moons!
I've recently been looking at it through my own scope from home and I love being able to see the moons. Knowing that they're so far away yet seem so small to us (and they're actually MASSIVE) is breathtaking.
That's why I got my own scope, I love to look at images like this (manipulated or not)! Having my own lets me view this from my own backyard (weather permitting!)

That "photo" is a highly manipulated work of art. Beautiful nevertheless. But yea, come on, you cant see the craters on the moon quite like that with the naked eye, giggle, so how is there trees in the photo, with a telescoped moon peeking out? Good stuff. Im not a photographer, and Ive never been fortunate enough to go to australia yet, but Im pretty sure the moons just as far away from the earth on their side as it is on ours here in England... so yea. art piece. not reallly photo.
