North West Astronomy Festival 2017 dates

Recommended Posts

Now in it's 5th year

This event is a non profit event and in previous years all profits went towards us working with young people disengaged from education. 

This year all profits will go towards astronomy outreach in the North West of England and the profits will be divided up between all clubs and societies who participate at the festival by way of a stall/outreach.

      This is a close up of IC 2944, also known as the Running Chicken Nebula or the λ Centauri Nebula, with the Bok Globules visible in the upper third of the frame. IC2944 is an open cluster with an associated emission nebula found in the constellation Centaurus, near the star λ Centauri. This image was exposed using a Cooled and full spectrum astro modded DSLR through a 8" SCT at it's native 2032mm (f10) focal length. The total exposure time was 8 hours and 25 minutes, through a UV/IR filter to capture natural colour data.

      The view of the deep southern part of the Milkyway around the Southern Cross, Crux, and Centaurus region. This image was taken with a Canon 5D mk4 using a Canon L-series 24-105mm Lens set to f4. Image taken from a mountain, a dark(ish) location, down southern part of NSW near Kiama, called Saddleback Mountain.

      NGC 6357 is a nebula about 5500 light years away in the constellation Scorpius near the better known NGC 6334, AKA the "Cat's Paw" or "Bear Paw" nebula. This nebula was also given the name War and Peace Nebula because of its appearance in infrared images, the bright western part resembles a dove and the eastern part looks like a skull. This photo was taken through a 8" SCT at f6.3 (1280mm focal length) and exposed using a full spectrum modded and cooled Canon 40D DSLR.
