The Sky at Night - November 2009

This episode of the Sky at Night was dedicated to the LCROSS lunar impact ( event on the 16th October, and was broadcast in November 2009. I was asked to come along and setup my scope at the seaside to try and capture the impact, unfortunately, cloud prevented us from seeing anything. The good news was that no-one else did either, as the impact was not visible from Earth!


The Sky at Night - January 2010

This episode was filmed in December 2009. I was asked to come along and bring some imager friends, so I invited Neil Richardson, Stephen Green and Iain Melville. I also took Emily along as well.  We had a great time filming, and also got some imaging in as well. Iain taught Emily how to do Star Trails with my Canon 350D, and caught some beauties.  More of her work here: Emily's Star Trails

I've been at this hobby for almost 20 years now, but tonight marks a milestone in data capture.  Tonight, I combined all the data over the last 4 years of Messier 51 (the Whirlpool Galaxy) into a single image.  This data was captured start in 2015, and consisted of 10 minute exposures.  This year I started capturing 20 minute exposures with the same mount, telescope and camera.

Here is the result:
