Hi all,

 

Previously I've got a chance to image Haumea by 5 consecutive nights.

Here is a resulting animation.

 

Location: L'viv, Ukraine.

Equipment: telescope newtonian SW 200/1000mm on Celestron Advanced GT mount. Used ASI174MM camera without filters.

Total exposure is around 30 minutes for each frame. Each frame had a different quality and brightness, I've tried to adjust them all as possible.

 

BR,

 

Oleksandr.

Thanks a lot for your comments :)

That's right, only Makemake and Pluto are brighter transneptunians.

The time interval is around 24 hours(+-1 or 2hr) betweeen each frame.
