Perhaps transits of moons around self-luminous young giant planets will be possible with the next generation of extremely large telescopes. Radial velocity detection would still be extremely challenging, unless a so-far-unknown class of massive, close-in satellites (an exomoon analogue of the hot Jupiters) exists.
