Description

My first attempt Neptun. (blue spot at centre) Very close by is Neptuns largest moon Triton.

Captured at 22:30, Sept. 8 2015

Triton's orbit has a similar distance to Neptun as Earth's moon to our Earth.
Triton moves retrograde ! ( I will try an animated gif for this at the next opportunity) and
Triton's separation from Neptune varies from about 10″ to 17″

Neptun is four times as big as Earth !
So, Triton is tricky to seperate from it's home planet :
Neptun's mag. is 8, Triton's mag. is 13.5
