On special request (and to satisfy my own curiosity of course), here's my observation of Pease 1 yesterday evening. I don't like putting arrows on my sketches so if you want to know what it is, it's the bright little patch on the top left of the nucleus. I didn't notice it at first but when adding the UHC filters it jumped out at me, as if it were a small, detached nucleus. Circumstances were fare from ideal though, with haziness and poor transparency, but I'm happy that I found it anyway... :)

 

You know the drill... please click on the image ;)

 

Cheers!

 

Peter

well done! :) That's an impressive magnification, but I think you need it to spy the little planetary.

 

Interestingly enough, I noticed that Pease 1 is the Cosmic Challenge for this month: http://www.cloudynig...e-pease-1-r3069

 

Did Phil follow our posts?? ;)

 

I observed M15 as well yesterday (more to follow) but didn't give Pease 1 a try, I think it's too much for my 10"...

 

Regards, Martijn

Thank you so much, Martijn and Michel... You're too kind! :flowerred:

 

@Martijn: Wow! What a coincidence! I should post my sketch as a reply... :grin:  But don't give up! The nebula's supposed to be small but yet it lit up significantly when I put the filters on, so I'm sure that you'll see it too. Go go go!!! :cool: :cool: :cool:

 

Cheers,

 

Peter

Very cool, but now you'll have to do the "list" of cluster planetaries :)

So I'm not nuts,  you see a blue cast to this globular too?  Exquisite treatment of the stars.  Time and again,  with my 8" I get this pale steely blue cast with this globular alone.  Not M13, 92 or 4, just this one.  And here you show it!  Comments?

Gosh! What a sight.  I assume, Peter, that the glob dimmed when you added the UHC making the planetary visible?

@Chris: Er... let's just stick to this one for the moment... :grin: :p

 

@Pete: To me all of the bright globulars have a sort of bluish hue, especially around the stars in the core, which was what I tried to reflect in the second version of my "normal" M15 sketch. Using the UHC filters for Pease 1 the blue colour became more than obvious of course.

 

@Mark: Yes, exactly. That brighter spot stood well out, but bear in mind that Pease 1 is surrounded by 2 or 3 fairly bright stars so I can't say that I saw the nebula clearly. It's too tiny to show any detail...

 

Thanks to you too, Michael, Frank, Marios and Tom! :flowerred:
