Moons of Saturn – July 31, 2017

Here is an over-exposed view of the planet Saturn in order to try and capture some of the planet’s moons. In this view I managed to capture Rhea, Hyperion, Titan, Dione, Enceladus )a small bump on the edge of the over-exposed Saturn), Tethys and Iapetus.

Tech Specs: Meade 12” LX90, Celestron CGEM-DX mount, Canon 6D, single 15-second exposure at ISO 3200 using Backyard EOS. Photographed on July 31, 2017 from Weatherly, Pennsylvania.
