If Mercury were orbiting Jupiter rather than the Sun, it would clearly never have been considered a planet (as is the case for Ganymede), while if our Moon were in Mercury’s place, it would be (barely) observable with the naked eye and would have been considered a planet even before the Copernican Revolution.

Methods for exomoon characterisation: combining transit photometry and the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect
Which spectral types represent the best candidates for a successful detection of exomoons with the RM effect? To answer this question, we performed simple calculations for stars in the Pleiades open cluster, assuming that every star has a planet with a Ganymede-sized moon in central transit.
Methods for exomoon characterisation: combining transit photometry and the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect
We calculated the amplitude of the RM effect according to Eq. 4, inserting the stellar radius and rotation velocity for each star, and substituting the size of Ganymede.
Methods for exomoon characterisation: combining transit photometry and the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect
