The ABC in Australia has just published their 2018 "Sky Tour" presentation in support of their Stargazing Live event this week ( http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/stargazing-live/ ). The presentation was produced by Genelle Weule and can be found at http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-05-21/stargazing-live-tour-great-southern-sky/9775660. It includes a narrated presentation by Prof. Fred Watson and includes four of my photos
I previously posted this video, but this time I added original music, "La Lune Super Bleue": Notes: The popular definition of a "blue moon" is the second full moon in a single month, which doesn't occur often, but in 2018 it happens twice: in January and March. Also, the January blue moon was a "super moon", one that is closer to Earth than usual, making it a little bigger and brighter. And that's not all. This full moon also underwent a total lunar eclipse in some areas (unfortunately, not in this video)! Here is space cam video of the January Super Blue Moon with original music, "La Lune Super Bleue", by my band The False Dawn. Enjoy, Reggie
This image is a compilation of my captures of Mars at various dates during this years opposition season of Mars. All of the images were taken using a 8" SCT at 6764mm focal length/f33.3 with an Imaging Source 21au618 and Skyris 618C CCDs. Since all of the images were taken at the same focal length and the same telescope, this is a good representation and comparison of the size of the martian disc as it got closer, was at opposition and was getting further from Earth.

Here is another short video of Jupiter, this time with my new StarShoot 5MP Solar System Camera a few days after opposition, with the GRS visible! The video includes shots from two separate imaging sessions a couple of days apart with two different scopes (the 180mm and the 127mm Maks). The GRS is in a slightly different position each time. Each session took place shortly after midnight, the air still, transparency and seeing fairly good. I could hear hoot owls in the distance. Otherwise, all was quiet as the world was sleeping. I felt like I had the entire sky to myself. Just me and my toys You'll see the live video first followed by the stacked image in Registax 6. Enjoy! Cheers! Reggie
As many others, I was out taking pictures of the Lunar Eclipse this Friday. Though the moon didn't rise until half way through the eclipse, and clouds coming in just as it rose above the horizon, it cleared out and I gave it a go! I hadn't planned doing an actual time-lapse, hence why the exposure length and color balance is all over the place. Not until I sat down and had a look at the pictures at least. Some of them I tried to fix with Photoshop, but it was honestly a very big task at hand, so I only did minor adjustments, and then just added the some stills at the end of it. But have a look if you like! As always simply observing the eclipse was also a treat, and this was only my second time watching one! Thanks for watching. Next time I will definitely try to actually properly prepare for a timelapse, instead of just smashing whatever pictures I captured together
