  1. From the album: Marci’s Astropix

    An absolute swine to capture with a full-spectrum camera full of pubes & no CLS filter, thus hoovers in Wakefield’s light pollution, hence this is a grayscale image (otherwise the entire thing is tinted in an unremovable orange that swamped out any natural colour). Only an hour of data... 15x 240s @ ISO800D, EOS1000D (modified), Explorer 200PDS
  2. Had a good 2 hours observations tonight with my Skywatcher Startravel 120 refractor. First off looking at Jupiter, which was nice and clear to look at tonight. Seeing was again 3.5 to 4, and saw nice details on Jupiter's surface. GRS was observed very easily later on at around 11:15pm when near to the centre of Jupiter. Used my blue filter and got good detail showing, however when seeing allowed you could see OK without the filter on too. I also tried to find the Leo triplet of galaxies which I'd never seen before. After a little hunting around, and finding the righ location, I honed in on M65 & M66 OK. These two little fuzzies where quite easy to see, and could see also without having to avert the eyes also. Best seen with my 17mm Skywatcher plossl EP at x35. Was very pleased to see these and before I knew it time was flying past. Tried looking for the third member of the group (NGC3628), but never saw it alas. If I had some darker skies I may have nabbed that too. Very pleased to have seen the othe two Messier's from my light polluted back garden anyway, so at least now I know where they are I can try again another time to see all three.
