Neptune Images

Here are my Neptune images, not too many at the moment, not so easy target!

The image at left shows Neptune and its major moon Triton. Move the mouse in and out of the picture to see identification of the reference stars. Several 10 second exposures were used for this image, that I took in Spain. Bjørn Håkon "Human GOTO" Granslo helped me find the planet, as I didn't bring my goto system down there. A big bonus was the variable star UX Capricorni, Identified by Steve Chambers (thanks Steve!).
