Currently all the outer planets Saturn to Pluto skim [my] east to SW horizon before midnight and last night captured the moons of Saturn and Neptune before cloud intervened on the other two planets so next time. Used Meade 12" LX200 f/3.6 SCT+SX Lodestar-Mx2+ LodestarLive s/ware in 5s and 10s exp respectively.

Saturn sats ID via Carts du Ciel. Triton is easy - any 'star' very close to Neptune is invariable oddball Triton that orbit the 'wrong way' eg retrograde :grin:
