Neptune and its moon Triton with a k7

Hi folks,

Another interesting image from the k7.

I was photographing the planet Neptune and when I zoomed right in and boosted the exposure I noticed a slightly bigger blob of noise.

I did the calculations and, sure enough, it's Neptune's largest moon Triton - right where it should be.

This was a 30 sec shot at ISO 800 through a 2000mm (and 200mm diameter - i.e. f10) Meade telescope.
