This is a composite image showing Saturn and m1 in the same field of view. Taken with the Newastro Remote Telescope at New Mexico Skies - C14 with ST-1001E.

The exposure of Saturn and its moons is 0.11 seconds. M1 is a stack of ten 10-second exposures. The two were combined and aligned in Photoshop. I used a separate layer for Saturn itself; it was too bright even to show in the image image as its moons!
