First successful composite of Uranus and moons

About this image

My first composite of two correctly exposed images, planet and satelites. Actually moons still overexposed so as to register the faintest. Miranda swamped by overexposed planet so not recorded. Planet was imaged in near infra red 685nm and the north polar hood just detectable . Satellites imaged in white light. Looking forward to next apparition,when will use ADC.
