  1. My Geminid results for the five sessions over the shower maximum. From my results only, looks like they peaked 23.00 UT or earlier on the 13th Dec. Regards to all, Les
  2. Selection of screenshots from last nights session. Les.
  3. Hi Mireles, Bit of trolling on old constellation pictures points at two possibilities for your NE star in the IDA image. Either 89 Vir or 87 Vir Of the two, 89 Vir is slightly brighter at Mv 4.95 against 87 Vir at Mv 5.4 from Stellarium software. Regards, Les
  4. Geminid results so far, now 3 days worth of obs. Some "manic" activity in the last session by my standards and numbers significantly higher than the same period last year. Les.
  5. Past two days activity from the shower so far. Les.
  6. Nothing on the visual side from Mid Wales so far, but the GRAVES detector has been pinging away like a good 'un over the past two days. Results so far are below. Regards, Les
  7. Hi, A couple of Pluto shots from two years ago for reference, taken some 23hrs apart with Canon 1100d and 8" SkyWatcher reflector. Les.
  8. Quick grab from last night before some clouds rolled in. Regards Les
  9. Nova image, inspite of the bright Moon trying to ruin things for me! Image scale 76' x 50' arc Regards, Les
  10. Hi Brendan, As vlaiv notes, a bit off for the Hyades cluster. With a Field of View roughly 1 x 2 degrees, you'll only capture parts of it, so yes, a mosaic will be needed. For reference, the bright blue star in your shot is Rho Tau ( p ) and your field of view is roughly that of the stellarium screenshot No 1 below. Screenshot No 2 shows the whole of the "V" of the Hyades cluster. Regards, Les
  11. Latest S/N shot from 5th Nov. Regards, Les.
  12. Managed to catch the SN again Saturday (24th) between bright Moon and rolling clouds. Sky obliterated some 15 mins after the shot!! Regards, Les
  13. Hi all, A couple of radio observations of the Orionids this year, showing premax, maximum and a couple of days post max. Regards, Les
