Equipment
Celestron 9.25 on a CG5-SGT mount. Digital camera: Canon 400D direct coupling.
Description
The image shows five satellites of Saturn from top on the right side:TITAN-DIONE-RHEA and on the left side is TETHYS and on the top of the rings is ENCELADUS. Distance fron Earth:8.67-8.68au. The interesting for me is the right colors of the satellites the camera has captured. The sky was one of the worst this night.
