After what seems like months of clouds in the UK, at last this evening we got some proper clear skies.
It gave me the opportunity to have a play with my new ovni-m night vision monocular coupled with my 16 inch dob. Previously I’ve only been able to observe afocally with my pvs-14 so it’s nice to have the extra flexibility to do prime which the ovni-m has.
Some great views tonight. Interestingly prime does seem to give nicer phone photos than afocal, less aberrations and reflections.
Here’s some quick phone shots from this evening with the ovni-m/dob setup. In order, 1) Horsehead 2) Flame 3) Monkeyhead and 4) sharpless 254/255/257 (the wind was causing some issues, hence some of the images show distorted stars)
