These images were taken with a Canon D60 digital SLR through an 8" Mak-Newt using a 4X TeleVue Powermate. A stack of 300 images at 1 second and IS0 100 were processed using Images Plus software. The above shot is composited with a 10 second ISO 100 background, to capture the moons, and the panels below are croppings from that image.
Tethys Tethys, consisting mainly of water ice, has a very low density and is dominated by the 400 km diameter impact crater Odysseus... almost 2/5 of this moon's size.
Enceladus With a surface dominated by ice, Enceladus has a very high albedo (level of reflectivity), the highest of any object in the solar system.
Dione Almost as dense as Titan, Dione is composed mainly of water ice, though thought to contain a considerable amount of denser material.
Rhea The second largest of the Saturn moons, Rhea is very similar in composition and albedo to Dione.
Titan The largest of Saturn's moons, Titan is shrouded with a thick atmosphere of nitrogen, argon, and methane along with trace amounts of more than a dozen other organic compounds.
Iapetus Saturn's third largest moon has strikingly different albedo levels between the leading and trailing hemispheres.
My earlier Saturn shots were taken with a Nikon CoolPix 995 digital camera, and may be seen on the preceeding page.
