Currently observing from Barbados, Damian had some excellent conditoins on September 25th and was able to capture this fine image of Neptune, with Triton nearby. Damian writes: "These are false coloured images taken through a long pass red light filter. I deliberately kept the sharpening fairly light to minimise artefacts as much as possible. Neptune shows some vague details. The brighter spot near the top of the disk immediately pops out even with light sharpening."
