  1. Wow, thanks Geof, the things I don't even know are there to be known! Google just also gave me an interesting paper from the Juno mission team discussing the 6 (!!!) different coordinate systems that they use for navigation around Jupiter. Why can't it all just be 'left a bit, right a bit'? I suppose it doesn't help that it's mostly a big ball of gas.
  2. Well done Geof, amazing captures, and thanks for the information on process. If you don't mind me asking, what are the data in the lower frame System: and CM: ??
  3. Extra points for a Milky Way shot with a lion in the foreground. 🙂
  4. Well done Wayne - it's not an easy target, and you've got great detail for 90 minutes.
  5. I was hopeful at 20:30 clear skies; put the tube out to cool down, but it's cloudy/foggy now so I took it back in. That's the only bit of imaging I've done all month.
  6. Nothing at all I'm afraid. We live in hope.
  7. That's a real stand-out shot. Really 3d. Well done!
  8. Yes, lots of accidental captures of the nova this year, including my own! I use that line of four stars (like a mini coat-hanger) as the locator, but it's so bright that it's easy to spot.
  9. Great collection of shots Neil, you were productive! And of course that red star between Bubble and M52 is Nova Cas 2021.
  10. I made a rookie mistake. I'm on a quick weekend trip to dark skies this weekend, but the forecast was so bad that I didn't bother packing the mount. Guess what? I'm currently looking at almost perfect skies. All may not be lost though as this is playing into my plan to buy a second one to keep here.
  11. "Bridge to Captain Kirk.... We're approaching the nebula now."
  12. Very nice indeed! Stellarium has it as 10' x 3' so very small. I'd love to get a crack at it.
