Manfred,

I bet it is a diffraction spike from 2nd magnitude Phecda in the Big Dipper. It is right next to M109, just outside your field of view. I bet it is beyond the camera's field of view, but still within what the scope can effectively see. A 2nd mag star would make a pretty huge diffraction spike off your scope's spider vanes. Great image, by the way!

Today, during a break at work I made some pictures of a sun corona and clouds shadows. I used a digital camera fujifilm finepix s5600,(setted at F8,1/2000s exposure and 64ISO). There was a very hot day this morning,about 30°C, but the sun corona was very beautiful and clear to see with this fine clouds shadows near the sun.

Looking into the MAGIC telescope

Post by Selene Obelix » Mon May 07, 2012 7:46 pm

I couldn't figure out how to edit the previous post to fix my
post so here it is again (but smaller and following the rules):

Looking into the MAGIC telescope

Looking into the mirror of the 17m MAGIC telescope,
La Palma, Canary Islands. The photographers can be
seen at the top.

More info: If you look on the ground you'll see the
remains of some snow - very unusual in the Canary
Islands. We were due to visit one of the observatories
but the visit was cancelled because of the snow. We
had to be content with taking pictures instead.

Venus taken on February 26 from 2311 to 2347 UTC in UV.

I wouldn't have ever thought to look but Emil Kraaikamp had found rotations in the clouds of Venus in a short 30-60 min of time. I had some captures laying around from Feb 26 and may have found moment in the following animation of 3 frames: 2309, 2340, and 2346 UT. Look in the lower left hand portion near the 'pole' for a high contrast area that shows the progression of what I think to be a cloud. Venus has been a tough target this year due to weather, work and family but I'm excited for the upcoming transit of Venus over the Sun!

This is an Ir / sG / UV - false color composite: Here's is the 3 frame animation: Thanks!

The Third Brightest Globular, NGC 6752 in Pavo
http://www.pbase.com/rolfolsen/astro_photography
Copyright: Rolf Wahl Olsen
The colorful globular cluster NGC 6752 is located appriximately 13,000 light years away in the southern constellation of Pavo. It is the third brightest globular cluster in the sky after Omega Centauri and 47 Tucanae.
This image was taken under an unforgiving 94% illuminated Moon but despite these conditions there are even a handful of faint background galaxies showing, see if you can spot them!
