Uranus - 23.9.2018 at 00.30 - 23.9.2018 at 01.00 Nakkila Observation number 77824

Visibility III / V

Tomi Kurri, Porin Karhunvartijat

I was thinking of trying something new for a change and Uranus happened to be comfortable with Hollus. I used common sense to shoot, a planetary camera could have gotten better results. The focal length was 2000mm, in hindsight Barlow would not have been a disadvantage.

Six Oberon and Titan are marked in the picture, although it is also possible to distinguish Ariel and Umbriel from the picture, who are attached to the very left side of Uranus.

There are other dim objects near the planet, but I assume they are stars in the background sky, it would be nice to have confirmation of this if someone knew better. The locations of the moons have been checked from the Sky and Telescope magazine simulator.
