Last Quarter Moon & Saturn

9 posts in this topic

Happy Equinox, everyone! Here is an image of the last quarter moon and Saturn I snapped at dawn, shortly after the spring officially arrived for us in the Northern Hemisphere:

And a Happy Equinox to you too, Reggie! It's couldn't come a moment too soon for me this year. This Winter has been foul..... :evil7:

A most apropos Moon & star for the day. Show the balance I'm looking towards.

Onwards -

      The visibility tonight was dreadful: hazy moon, and the only star I could see (barely) was Sirius.  However, I had my 9.25" Evolution (with x0.67 reducer) out to play to try out controlling over ASCOM and also fixed up a ZWO ASI120MM with an infra-red filter (Christmas present from my daughter.)  Focusing was next-to impossible and single lights looked appalling.  But 500 of them later, and after stacking in Nebulosity, I got this... the first Moon image I have ever processed and posted.
      I was amazed how good this ended up given the poor conditions (which must improve some day?)
      Thanks for looking,
      AK

      Here is a real-time video of the Moon/Aldebaran occultation last night (March 4). Aldebaran disappears around the 38s mark. Shot on my Sony Handycam. Soundtrack is an original composition called "dark energy" from my upcoming space music album, THE FALSE DAWN, due out on the vernal equinox!
      Enjoy!

      We're currently in a pattern of monthly occultations of Aldebaran by the moon because of Luna's position relative to the ecliptic. I caught some cool images of the occultation as it happened! Here is just before the event at about 10:50 p.m. :
       
      and just after, at about midnight:

      The moon took on a sepia glow as it descended upon the western horizon.
      Don't you just love our cosmos?

      Beautiful conjunction of Venus and Jupiter. Venus is the brighter of the two celestial objects.
