  1. unfortunately tonight I have more clouds and rain here in San Diego...
  2. Radman40, the asteroid is currently around magnitude 17 and will be magnitude 9 at its brightest on the 26th, as for where to look,
  3. I recently stumbled on this==>http://www.nasa.gov/jpl/asteroid-to-fly-by-earth-safely-on-january-26/#.VLcuzivF-q_ while reading stuff on NASA's website and this is something i definitely want to see. Its closest point to us will be about three times as far as the moon, so i think we're safe. Asteroid 2004 BL86 is said to be the closest asteroid to pass by the earth for the next 200 years. The asteroid also will be the largest one around until the predicted asteroid 1990 AN10 flies past in 2027. I am hoping to observe it .
  4. Thanks, I didn't quite understand what some of them meant.
  5. Nice looking images. looks great, but how long were the exposures? just curious.
  6. Negative feelings about clouds

  7. Got a picture of Jupiter quite a while back, found it while scrolling through some folders. I'm ok with the image, but i wish i took shorter exposures and just stacked them. Well, time for more imaging! Moons from top to bottom: Ganymede, Io, Europa, Calypso.
  8. Finally, with Saturn at a good position (well, for me) i guess i will be spending a bit of time checking it out. It has been really cloudy for a few weeks and now its finally cleared up. Last time i looked at it, i didn't know what to look at. Anything I should look out for this week?
  9. Amazing. Im glad i stumbled onto this thread. This is quite a project, great job. Grwat pictures too.
  10. So I've been reading about this other comet that I've never heard of, linear. Apparently it is around the same area a Comet Panstarrs. Also there is a possibility of a meteor shower from the comet. More info on http://www.space.com/25848-comets-visible-may-night-sky.html
  11. Nice job capturing M51. Looks amazing

    First sketch M44

    Well, i know i didnt capture a lot of stars, but its the best i can do for only a few minutes with a small scope. I dont know what i would like to sktech next actually, what would you recommend?
  13. I stayed aup last night just a bit longer imaging and thought I'd try sketching something. So i decided M44. It may not be the best, or most detailed, but we all gotta start somewhere.
  14. From the picture, the yellow-orange streak seems to be an insect. Probably just flying and happened to reflect some light into your scope.
  15. Sweet, ill be trying to spot PanSTARRS by this weekend.
  16. Well done pyrasanth! These are great shots.

    Hi, I'm Adrian

    I am a teen whom is in love with astronomy. I've been reading so much about it and can't wait until late spring and summer to go sky watching in southern CA. Recently blown away by Jupiter, I can't wait to see other planetary objects. So far, I've seen m42, m31, and quite a few global clusters. I'm still hunting for more clusters and reading about nebulas. Hopefully soon, I can get into a local astronomy club.
