  1. Here are some more images I took of the Venus/Uranus conjunction in addition to the one already posted. And to think, I was wondering what that pesky star was above Venus! Reggie
  2. Here is a prime focus shot I took of Uranus through my 127mm Mak a few weeks ago just before the Mars/Uranus conjunction: Cheers! Reggie
  3. Seems to have come round again very quickly! The latest edition of the Binocular Sky Newsletter is ready. Despite the short, not-very-dark nights, as well as the usual overview of DSOs, variable and double stars, this month we have: * χ Cyg is brightening nicely * Neptune and Uranus are now becoming observable * We have the grand total of 3 observable lunar occultations To grab your (free!) copy, or to subscribe, log on to http://binocularsky.com and click on the Newsletter tab
  4. The Binocular Sky Newsletter for December 2013 is now available. Things have been a tad hectic recently at "BinoSky Central" , so this is a tad shorter than usual but, I hope, will still be useful. What I try to pass off as "normal service" will be resumed as soon as possible... In addition to the usual selection of good DSOs and Solar System objects to observe, in this month's issue we also have: * Comet Lovejoy * Many lunar occultations * A selection of variable stars To grab your (free!) copy, go to http://binocularsky.com/ and click on the Newsletter tab. I hope you find it useful.
  5. The latest edition of the Binocular Sky Newsletter is ready. As well as the usual overview of DSOs, variable and double stars, this month we have: * Uranus and Neptune are back (just!) * A couple of Mira variables near maximum * Ceres is still available * Review of the Bino Bandit I hope it helps you to get the best out of these short summer nights with your binoculars or small telescopes. To pick up your free copy, just head over to http://binocularsky.com and click on the Newsletter tab. You can also subscribe (also free) and have it emailed each month.
  6. Happy New Years Everyone, On December's Supermoon evening, December 3, 2017 at about 9:56pm, the seeing here in Southeastern Pennsylvania was excellent (4/5 - 5/5 Sky clock). I decided to turn my Meade LX50-10" SCT to the Ice Giant Planet Uranus. After doing quite a bit of research in imaging the 7th planet, I used an ASI120mm camera with a Baader 610nm Long Pass Filter. I choose not to use a Barlow since from historical experiences with Mars I find I obtain small but sharp results without one. I acquired 39minutes of video at a frame rate of 4 fps with a gain of 73 collecting 10,012 total frames. Using AS2 I stacked the best 3000 frames using a 1.5 drizzle then processed further using Registax 6 and PS5. My question is did I capture any details on the planet? Using WINJUPOS and Moon positions, I also show the orientation of the planet at the time of imaging. The colored image is just a combination of the Near IR610RGB inserted in place of the overexposed Uranus showing the moons. Just seeking anyone's ideas. Thank you so much for looking, All my best, Kevin
  7. The November edition of the Binocular Sky Newsletter is ready. As well as the usual overview of DSOs, variable and double stars, this month we have: * Uranus still available * Comet 46P * Mira brightening * Asteroid occultation for southern England So grab those binocs (or small telescope) and enjoy the glories that the night sky has to share with us.

  8. The February Binocular Sky Newsletter is ready. In addition to the usual stuff on DSOs and variable and double stars, this month we have: Uranus still available Occultation of δ Cnc X Oph near maximum Grazing occultation of 63 Tau (Devon only) I hope it helps you to enjoy these chilly winter nights.

  9. It has been too long since I contributed anything to the forum, so I thought to share with you my latest try in planetary astrophotography. Actually it is my first try with SW 300p Goto Flextube dobsonian which I recently acquired. I wanted to try out how the system tracks for webcam astrophotography, which is my second point of interest after visual observing. In short - it tracked quite well - no jerkyness in tracking, very smooth, stable and centred for a long time, and I am also very happy with my old motor focus which helped me out tremendously. The conditions were very poor though, and the resulting picture is heavily post-processed. At least it managed to capture the colour quite nicely. For caputre, I use a modified Prestigion PWC2 webcam, Baader 2.25x barlow and UV/IR-cut filter. You can see the imaging setup in the second picture.
  10. It was quite breezy today and I came home to find the clemitis hanging off the front of the house. By the time I'd hacked all this down it was getting a bit late to get the scope set up and it was still a bit blowy to make this really worthwhile. Anyway, it was such a nice clear night that I got out my 10 x 50s and had a scan around. I had the abligatory look at M31, which virtually filled the width of the FOV and M33, a distinct oval fuzzy patch. I mainly wanted to hunt down Uranus and Neptune. I found Uranus quite easily via a star hop down from Algenib. Neptune was quite a bit fainter and being lower in the sky didn't help much either. It was still not too difficult to spot after a star hopw down from the water jar asterism. It'll be interesting to watch both planets move during the coming nights - if we get any more clear skies that is.
