The moons of Uranus

About this image

I've captured a few images of a nicely placed Uranus recently, but this was an attempt to capture its main moons as they lined up rather nicely in the early hours.  As usual Miranda eluded me, lost in the glow of an over-exposed Uranus to capture the other four main moons.      One day I'll find a setting that lets me capture all five!

I've superimposed a picture taken of Uranus shortly after, at the size it would have appeared if the image hadn't needed to be overexposed to capture the moons.
