Sirius Color

Post by MANUELC » Tue Mar 15, 2011 5:10 pm

What is this line of colors?
I had always wanted to capture the color palette that gives our beloved Sirius. That being the brightest star in the northern hemisphere, not a single star (it is a binary star) and its flash is multicolored. This is an exposure of 8 seconds and while moving the telescope. The result is a line of colors. From Chiclana de la Frontera, Cádiz, Spain.
