Query over M 82 image .

Recommended Posts

Alan,

Paul's software is designed to stack frames from different color channels, so multi spectral imaging can be done.  If you stop the exposure and move to a different object and restart the exposure without recycling the image, the next frame may stack on your last one.  Do you have a record of what image you had before M82?

Hello Don....... I am 99% sure this was the image immediately prior to M 82 . Favourite part of the night sky at the moment . So a blurring of images seems to be the answer . ....Alan.

Very nice detective work there......although I would have much rather seen a supernova discovery unfolding! :) Nice captures anyway.

Rob,

About two years ago, there was a supernova discovered in M82.  I believe it was some amateur astronomers in the UK.  Nytecam pointed it out and I was just getting into video astronomy.  Here are my attempts to get it with my SCB2000.

Hi Don, thanks for posting that, very interesting to see. I do remember that one but for some reason I was not in a position to capture it for myself - probably still learning the ropes at the time (still am!).

And we were all wishing for you as well !! A bit odd that a previous frame did not show up in the first of the new stack rather than lurking to pop up later !?

If I am remembering the same one : A university lecturer (University College London) and his students, aborted a 'lecture at the telescope' because of bad weather, grabbed a moment of clear sky to demo the CCD camera and , , the rest was history :) !  I love it, classic UK wx and a good bit of serendipity.

I had to lay down with an ice pack on my forehead....... The excitement is too much at times !!

I remember this SN in 2014  - I actually captured it the night before it was reported - but did not notice anything unusual in the image :(

Here's a single exposure taken on the 19th Jan 2014 at 20:28 which shows the SN quite clearly (raw FIT file debayered in Nebulosity).

I guess many people must have done the same.

It was only afterwards when people started talking about the SN that I looked back through my files - I almost always store my sessions just in case now!
