Quote:I would gladly take cold clear winter nights if we had them! This is arguably the beginning of the best time of year for AP given how much darkness we get. Also the cold weather makes DSLR shooting a possibility.Let's hope for clear weather in EWA at least.
Quote:Yes it seems to be way too low now. It would be nice to photograph it and also get some landscape in the foreground. Perhaps if it gets brighter and bigger

Quote:with only an hour of 2 minute sub exposures and a third of them taking punishment from the moon, I'm not too disapointed in my m33 from last night..
Quote:Pretty cool, Robert! If M33 was at 12:00 for you, what direction was the moon? With the seeing so good this might be a good time to try Jupiter or Luna.
Quote:Nice Orion!I ended up going to the Yakima Canyon. I compared my subs from Rattlesnake Lake and from Yakima and there is a dramatic difference in sharpness. I think for small targets Rattlesnake Lake is just a waste of time for luminance. For RGB data it should be OK tho.
Quote:CGCG 538-059/PGC 9101 is one Arp missed for his category spiral galaxies with a low surface brightness galaxy on an arm. Like many Arp put in this category, the companion has no red shift data. In this case the field is very poorly cataloged so it isn't even listed. While it appears likely it is a true companion I can't verify it. It is a very blue galaxy that could indicate interaction. The main galaxy has one cut off arm and one long one apparently drawn out by the companion.
