Using a Meade LX50 10" SCT and a Canon XS DSLR I was able to stack 40 x 2second images to reveal its largest moon Triton at magnitude 13.5.  This image was taken from my backyard only 40 miles South of Philadelphia and Triton was not visible through the eyepiece.  The individual images were stacked using Images Plus software.
