EtaCarina Star, "Giant eruptions" & Omega Centauri new
      #3983511 - 08/14/10 10:22 PM

Last July, I went to Australia with obssesion 18" UC to observing star.

(My hometown is S.Korea)

During my observation trip, lots of cloud covered with Australia.

So we rented a car, and moved everyday to find clear sky. (Goondiwindi, Miles, Coonabarabran)

I want to share some sketchs of southern showpiece.


Southern showpiece #1 : Eta Carina

Eta Carina star is incredible!!!

It is not difficulty for observe erupted materials from Eta Carina star.

I did'n expect observing "Giant eruptions", but I observed this feature with 18" UC and extremly clear sky

(I saw belt of venus and zodiacal light every night)

Key hole nebula is clear and impressive dark nebula beside Eta Carina star.


plese click the below link

Nightwid,

An excellent observation of Eta Carina (and it's giant eruptions) and Keyhole Nebula. You have recorded a multitude of stars in your rendering. The celestial objects that you observed in Australia must have been spectacular! I can observe a few southern hemisphere objects such as Omega Centauri (NGC 5139) from my location (South Florida, USA) . Even with this object at a low altitude over my southern horizon does it reveal it's majesty. Your web site documents your visit to Australia and it's skies very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

I too the liberty in inverting your excellent observation of the Omega Centauri (NGC 5139) globular cluster. You recorded a wealth of stars over this spectacular globular cluster. I hope that you like it.

Carlos

Nightwid, that's a lovely sketch, and I really like your Omega Centauri. I enjoyed looking through the photos of Australia on your website, as well.

I hope to translate my report to English for sharing it with many observers, but I'm not good at writing English well..

In my spare moments, I'll make English version and posting CN's observation forum.

I am looking forward to seeing the English version. Don't worry about your standard of English - it's fine!

Thanks for posting the Korean links - the pictures are great and in English we say that a picture tells a thousand words.
