Quote:I took a look at Neptune tonight through my 11" SCT in suburban skies. I thought I saw Triton, but I am not sure... I kept thinking I saw a tiny faint point sitting just off the edge of Neptune's disk, more through averted vision than direct. The separation between Neptune and suspected-Triton was very small, probably an arc second or two... literally just off the edge. But, I may have been hallucinating. Did anybody else see Triton tonight? Was it right off the "limb" of Neptune? Curious... Thanks,
