PostSubject: Early observations   Fri Jan 14, 2011 10:48 pm

Before the advent of telescopic photography, eight moons of Saturn were discovered by direct observation using optical telescopes. Saturn's largest moon, Titan, was discovered in 1655 by Christiaan Huygens using a 57-millimeter (2.2 in) objective lens[5] on a refracting telescope of his own design.[6] Tethys, Dione, Rhea and Iapetus (the "Sidera Lodoicea") were discovered in 1671–1672 by Giovanni Domenico Cassini.[7] Mimas and Enceladus were discovered in 1789 by William Herschel.[7] Hyperion was discovered in 1848 by W.C. Bond, G.P. Bond[8] and William Lassell.[9]

The use of long-exposure photographic plates made possible the discovery of additional moons. The first to be discovered in this manner, Phoebe, was found in 1899 by W.H. Pickering.[10] In 1966 the tenth satellite of Saturn was discovered by Audouin Dollfus, when the rings were observed edge-on near an equinox.[11] It was later named Janus. A few years later it was realized that all observations of 1966 could only be explained if another satellite had been present and that it had an orbit similar to that of Janus.[11] This object is now known as Epimetheus, the eleventh moon of Saturn. It shares the same orbit with Janus—the only known example of co-orbitals in the Solar System.[12] In 1980 three additional Saturnian moons were discovered from the ground and later confirmed by the Voyager probes. They are trojan moons of Dione (Helene) and Tethys (Telesto and Calypso
