    That's not bad for a 'toy' telescope! I will bet with some practice and a little better conditions you will see some of its moons!

    The sky was completely cloudless that night, i think it is purely the fault of my telescopes inferior quality. But i suppose it is quite alot for such a small aperture. Thanks!

    It is not always clouds that can effect your views, skyglow from the moon, turbulent air, 'transparency' or moisture in the atmosphere, light pollution. A whole list of things.

    Point is under the right conditions Just about any instrument will reveal Jupiter's moons. It is just that 'better' instruments don't require those 'perfect' conditions.

    I can perfectly see Jupiter moons in my 10x50 binoculars...small aperture? Yes, 50mm is small. But also low power 10x.
    Use a low power eyepiece to get wider FOV and it will reveal those bright dots

    Keep on observing with this scope Michal - eventually you'll be able to see a lot more things with it once you use it more.

    I started out with a 50mm refractor as a teenager. I was able to see Saturn's rings, Jupiter's moons, even the ice caps on Mars at it's closest approach to the Earth. Also was able to find M57 (Ring Nebula) and M8 (Lagoon Nebula) with it, among other deep sky objects. All of this from my urban backyard - of course there was probably less light-pollution back then.
