Last year I managed to image Uranus with three of its moons so I decided to try Neptune, this time with colour. I have succeeded in capturing Triton but it is so close to the planet you will need to have a very close look. Nereid was indicated on Stellarium, well away from the planet, but I have not been able to find it on my image.At mag 18 I would need longer exposures.
