Enceladus and Mimas
Author Last Post

Took of photo of Saturn high in the south yesterday evening and while processing saw a small smudge upper right of the planet (barely visible in this original image)

So I boosted the area surround Saturn, and surely enough it is Dione. That wasn't such a big surprise since I can usually see this in my 7" Mak, but I was really surprised to see two more moons to the left barely visible in the glare of the planet... Enceladus and Mimas!
