Hi everyone.

 

A classic spring group of Galaxies.

 

March 20 and 24, 2020 live  observation with help of EAA with SiOnyx Aurora night cam on afocal setup on a 16" dobsonian placed on an equatorial table, Celestron 25mm eyepiece. Good conditions of seeing and transparency on 23rd for M65/66, excellent on 24th for NGC 3628. Mosaic of 2 observations, one from M65 / 66 and the other from NGC 3628 combined in one single drawing on a background of stars taken from Aladin for infill areas. Drawing on black Canson paper with chalk and wax pastel pencils. Original size: 11.75x19"

 

Clear and virus free Sky,

Francis

Great work. That it shows the flaring-out in 3628 is very encouraging - I am thinking about such a setup.

Franc, do you know anything about the US $400 Syonix Aurora Sport? As far as I can tell, it is exactly the same camera as the other current versions, plus waterproofing but minus their many action-camera digital tricks and accessories that have nothing to do with image acquisition or live display.

I noticed on the net that some people had used the sport model for EAA. I better advise to wait for the marketing of the "pro model" this spring, which is equipped with a larger sensor and higher sensitivity.
