Mars, Phobos & Diemos

Recommended Posts

 

 

Hi Guys,
 
Here is a mosaic taken by separate captures on the morning of the 14th September. I managed to capture the tiny moons Phobos and Diemos,- (just 12km diameter). I autoguided on the planet using PHD2 using a separate 20 second exposure, and combined the images in layers using Gimp. Details of equipment is on the image. 
 
Best Wishes
Harvey

Oh, well done.  I'm genuinely surprised it's possible to have captured the moons, given how small they are.
