This is a slow rate colour image over-exposing Neptune to show Triton, with separate colour images of Uranus and Neptune taken on the nights of 8th and 11th September respectively.  The image of Uranus was taken with a newly acquired and sensitive colour planetary camera, the ASI462.  Neptune was taken using a deep sky colour camera as if it was planetary.
