Outer Giant's Moons

I've been playing around with a new ASI 290MM camera and 742nm IR filter.

While looking at the Saturn data, the moons were easily visible, so I decided to mask Saturn and up the levels for the moons to make them more obvious.

Last night I had a go at Uranus. No moons were evident, but I decided to mask the planet and stretch the background. Surprisingly there were two moons hidden in the noise. As far as I can ascertain, they are Titania and Oberon.

Hardware:
  • Celestron EdgeHD 1100
  • Celestron CGEM DX Mount
  • ZWO ASI 290MM Camera
  • Astronomik ProPlanet 742nm IR-pass filter + Astronomik Deep Sky RGB
  • Teleview 2x Powermate (Uranus only)
