Nereid, third largest of Neptune’s moons – Brisbane 27th & 28th Aug 2016.
Looking forward to Nereid being included in ST4 - thanks Greg. Smile

In the meantime, here are a couple of images of Nereid taken from my back yard on 27th & 28th August 2016.

Taken using a Tak Mewlon 210, Tak x0.8 Reducer/Flattener and an ATIK 414 EX camera. I captured 75x60 sec frames on 27th Aug and 37x120 secs on 28th Aug. Images were calibrated, aligned and stacked using CCDStack2 and finished in CS6. You can easily see the movement of Neptune, Triton and Nereid against the field stars over the two nights of 27th & 28th August 2016.
The full size originals have a FOV of 15.2 x 11.3 arcmin at 0.65 arcsec/pixel. The 1024x768 crops have a FOV of 13 x 9.7 arcmin.
