M82 SuperNova Real-Time video thru IIE (city) new
      #6336090 - 01/26/14 05:59 AM Attachment (42 downloads)

The clouds finally cleared out so I made an attempt within the Los Angeles confines of severe light pollution.

Got a reasonable take of this supernova. Actually in a Gen 3 image intensifier, this SN is quite bright.

M82 Super Nova Real-Time video link.

Equipment used: Mewlon 250 scope @ f9.2, LP695 long pass IR filter (to cut sky glow), Panasonic GH3 camera.

Here's a 0.625 sec still:

Your exposure is more correct
my f4 1 sec was a little to much
but I was in to much pain to operate
small buttons on camera

Fantastic photo. Best I've seen and the first that's inspiring me to brave the very cold, below zero temps, to get out to observe it.

Thanks to both you and highfnum for documenting this event with I2 tech.

Very nice! Now if it would only clear up and not be quite so cold here...I would like to view this puppy before it fades.

Ok, I want one. How does one get started with IIE?

It's not cheap, but go to this thread for some very good information. I will most likely go with the NVD Micro monocular eventually.

BTW, very nice image of M82!

Hoping to be at RTMC this year and bringing a few I^2 devices and really would like to let some people see what these can do. Hoping to talk tech with other users too. If the weather is good and I don't get hit by a bus or get sick, I'll be there this year. Let's go hunting for stuff! This tech completely rocks for real time astronomy views.



yes - great pic. I caught the SN a few weeks ago still bright on the limb, though now rapidly fading. using my 6" mak with .5x reducer and a gen 3 biocular. It was first SN I ever viewed (that i know about anyway).

Tried for SN last night, but not enough aperture or magnification with 120ST. Where it was clear and bright several weeks ago, it is rapidly fading to magnitudes that my current scopes won't reach.
