Actually several. 90" x 22 at ISO 200. Total integration only 33 minutes but I wasn't totally sure how to approach this target from the get-go. Sky-Watcher 130PDS, CG-5 ASGT, Canon 80D

I certainly wasn't expecting much from this imaging attempt, just enough that I could clearly have a disc with hopefully the correct color. For such a short scope, I think this actually turned out alright. This final image is obviously quite cropped in from what came out of the camera. Minor sidenote I did capture this this morning, but apparently gave the file the wrong name.

Nice image it is always nice to see objects closer to home, and Neptune & Uranus being so far out always seem to get over looked.  Thank for showing the beauty in our own solar system. waytogo.gif

Thanks! Yeah they're both actually in great placement for us northern observers right now. Much better than Jupiter and Saturn. I'm glad I don't have to wait 4 or 5 years to get some gas giants.

Thanks all, someone else pointed out there's actually two moons hiding just up and to the left of the planet! Oberon and Titania!
