Venus at inferior conjunction

Post by Max Teodorescu » Sat Jan 11, 2014 11:13 pm

After a short look at the departing sunspot group AR 1944, I started to look for Venus through my C11 telescope. After about 5 minutes, the very thin but very large crescent suddenly appeared into the field of view. It was surreal to watch the boiling atmospheric arc of the planet just above the Sun in plain day. My wife immortalized the moment by taking a panoramic view from our clear-skies location. Equipment: C11 telescope at F/10, ASI120MM camera with IR filter. 3000 frames in bad seeing conditions. Date and hour: January 11, 2013, 11:33 U.T.

Image

And a panoramic view created by my wife together with my Venus image:

Both images are also found on my blog here:

Copyright: Steven Coates
NGC 281 the Pac Man nebula is an emission nebula in the constellation of Cassiopeia about 9,500 light years from Earth. NGC 281 is home to IC 1590, a star cluster, and several Bok globules. Bok globules are areas of dark, dense dust found in HII regions. These dense areas ungo gravitaional collapse which in turn forms double stars or multiple star systems.
Imaged from Ocala, FL
Imaging telescope: Astro-Tech 8 inch Ritchey-Chretien telescope
Imaging camera: QSI 683wsg-8
Ha data 3 hours

The milk of Hera on the sky

Post by conemmil » Sun Jan 12, 2014 4:08 pm

This is the Milky Way from the oldest island of the Pacific ocean called Magnaia. I was there for the 2010 total solar eclipse there and had the opportunity to view some of the darkest skies in my life.
At the lower part of the image and through the trees, lies the constellation of the Southern Cross and above the bright star is Alpha (a) Centauri. The image was made with a Canon 5D MK1 and a 14mm f/2.8 lens. It was placed on an equatorial tracking mount and the image is a combination of 30 exposures of 180 seconds each.

Kind regards
Constantine Emmanouilidi
