Hi all,

 

I am new here, but i am sure some of you here are well known because we are all available in different astronomy sites or forums or groups.

 

I am from Ajman, UAE, and I've got into astro back in 2017, i am still learning and consider myself as beginner or novice, and improving night after night, and i hope i can learn and share here in this site and enjoy or having fun, we will see, and please forgive my language, I am Arabic and English is my second not fluent language. 

 

Clear skies all

You're welcome. I'm fine thanks, although no observing tonight with that bloody supermoon lol.

Hi Tareq and welcome.

You May feel like a novice, but you are a veteran to me as I have only been involved in this interest a few months. I have found this forum extremely helpful, understanding and tolerant of my lack of knowledge. 

I hope you find your time here enjoyable.

Pity that i am so tired tonight after long playing, otherwise i was going to image the moon with new telescope and new camera, but it is ok, i always have nights for supermoon every month.

Hi Martin,

 

Thank you very much for those beautiful words, i appreciate it, we all learn and start at some point, i was so dummy before 2017 and even in 2017, i damaged my first ever planetary camera and i was going to break my mount and i damaged it internally which costs me a new motherboard, you will learn in no time, be patient and read more and ask and enjoy!

I might go out later to catch a rising Saturn and Jupiter. They're a bit low for me though.

It was clear here with above average seeing (Antoniadi II maybe). The near Full Moon didn't help, but I could just make out M57 with a 60mm refractor, so it wasn't bad at all. Plus I got to see Saturn and Jupiter.

I don't know which target rather than clusters and galaxies i will image with my new color camera, not narrowbanding of course because i don't have those multi bands filter for the color camera.

I stopped planetary imaging

 

The planets are low in the Northern Hemisphere now and not easy. How about imaging double stars? I'm strictly visual but I've been observing a lot of doubles at the moment. The sky's full of them lol.

Did you actually see them? Here they were rising at 5 am where it’s already day light and full moon plus too low on horizon from my back garden

I'm at a high altitude above mean sea level, although the planets were still low.

Saturn was at about 14 degrees at around 03:30. I could see Titan, planetary surface detail and the Cassini Division. Jupiter was visible to me around 04:30 at 18 degrees. I could see all of the Galilean moons with Io being close to the limb. Both the NEB and SEB were visible with some detail. I mainly viewed Saturn with no filters but did experiment with a Lumicon #11 and a Baader Yellow 495nm longpass. Later I switched to a Baader Neodymium for Jupiter. I observed both planets with a combination of a 10mm BCO and 9mm Circle T (orthoscopics) in an Altair 3x Tele Extender Barlow. These gave 108x and 120x respectively.

I wish to have the same position.

 

excellent spot! 

 

Well, that image is SkySafari and not my back garden lol, but I am in the countryside and quite high above sea level.

They are not very low here in my area, they are always super clear to my eyes and they are getting higher month after month, but that wasn't the reason i stopped planetary for now.

My location is amazing for planets, i will not talk about seeing because that is not in my hand or anyone hand, it is what it is, we have excellent seeing, average seeing and poor seeing, all happens, but we have more clear skies and more steady weather most of the time, because of that i took the advantage in 2018 and part of 2019 to do planetary and lunar and many people liked my results so far, but then i stopped.

I believe the planets are high viewed from the Southern Hemisphere, or at least nearer the equator. The UK is quite northern though. If it wasn't for the Gulf Stream we'd probably be living in permafrost lol. Anything in the sky lower than around 45 degrees you are viewing through a lot of atmosphere. I was out last night, although I only got a couple of hours until the inevitable clouds.
