NOVA CAS 2021.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, had a good session last night imaging different objects from my obs in  Stoke-on-Trent. These two pictures[from my two rigs] are of the Nova in Cassiopeia which i last imaged on the 25/3/21. What a difference it has suddenly undergone in magnitude these last few days,by at least 2 i believe. They say it could be visible from a dark location with unaided eye now, had a look last night but not from my local.

1st pic taken with my wide rig WO STAR71mm,1st gen / ZWO 1600mc  1x180s..

2nd was taken with my OOUK ODK12 / A A 294C ProTec . 2x180s.

Just when I figured this beauty had faded away.... Wow, I'm very surprised to see it has brightened since I too iamged it way back on March 28th. Here's a blink I did of it at that time compared to a shot from last year before it flared up.

I wished both of these images compared better but the original non-nova image was taken from a Bortle 2 location and the shot with the nova was taken from my backyard under Bortle 8 skies.
