It is amazing to see how the moons rotate around Saturn (aka. Lord of the rings). In this picture, I was able to capture their movement in a period of 4 weeks, I only missed two nights. Titan has a period of 16 days so now it is completing its next cycle. but, Iapetus is still on the first lap. The process of planet alignment and star removal is done each night. I hope I could continue to see the whole cycle of the Iapetus too.
