Deimos captured

Post by astroeddie »

Guys,

During my last session of planetary imaging, 4th Dec, I managed to capture DEIMOS, one of the Martian moons with my DSI.
This is just one frame, very grainy, but i did manage to capture the moon fairly easily. Mars ofcourse is over exposed to capture one of its faint moons.
