    Today's picture, taken on November 14th 2009 at 3:52 am.
    Using the 98 in Hooker telescope.

    Here is the planet Uranus the seventh planet from the sun and 2.57 billion km away from earth.

    A great deal of work went into getting this shot. Most of the effort went into getting a picture of the rings. Uranus's rings are the 2nd most complex ring structure after Saturn. Although not shown in the picture there are often waves in-between the ring structures.

    Uranus can be viewed by the human eye only when its extremely dark and know where your looking.

    I suggest wolframalpha to help you find this object better: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=uranus

    Was this another long exposure shot?
    And if so, why aren't the stars in the background blurry.
