A petition is now online against the Star Eater.
It has been proposed by myself and reviewed by Laurent Laveder, Thierry Legault, Ian Norman, Damian Peach, Aaron D. Priest and Babak Takeshi.
We invite you to sign it and share it to the max:
hi all, thought I'd share a wide field of mine captured on Saturday night (13 Oct) It's another Cassiopeia widefield - is it me or are there loads of us imaging this constellation recently? Shot with my Sony Alpha 200, Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 lens @ 50mm wide open, ISO 800. IIRC it's total of 65 x 20 second lights, 60x 20sec darks and 20x 1/4000sec bias all stacked with DSS and post-processed in PhotoShop CS4. Solved by Astrometry with the following details:
(RA, Dec) center:(19.3779150171, 61.1835725999) degrees
(RA, Dec) center (H:M:S, D:M:S):(01:17:30.700, +61:11:0.861)
Orientation:158.33 deg E of N
Pixel scale:44.52 arcsec/pixel
Field size :25.33 x 16.30 degrees
Your field contains:
The star Caph (bCas)
The star Schedar (aCas)
The star γCas
The star Ruchbah (δCas)
The star Navi (εCas)
The star ηCas
The star ζCas
The star ηPer
The star κCas
The star θCas
NGC 869 / Double cluster

Here's the annotated version:
and the un-annotated version for the purists:
If you think there's more data to pull out, or would like to have a go, I have the raw TIFF file saved from DSS uploaded to my DropBox and can post a link if you want to have a go with it.
