    Smile Stripey Moon from 22nd July 10



    Just a follow on from my earlier observation report. The clouds made imaging difficult so I stopped trying and enjoyed the view. The clouds made the moon stripey which reminded me of Jupiter! Maybe it's just me? lol
    This shot was taken with Pentax Optimo M40, hand held through 32mm EP.

    Me too also Pete, I need those clear, dark skies!
    Oh well, at least the moon's planet impression kept me amused! lol

    Thanks Eric, what's the sky like in your neck of the woods?

    Over here in Dublin I am still in the doledrums for observations.
    It is showing signs of improving this evening but I have such a busy day as well just finishing a 14 mile run, that new equipment or not, I am not going out tonight.
    Work tomorrow as well.

    But at this stage I am seeing planets in the day time such is my starvation in astronomy..
    Nice mid summer images Carol..

    This is my first summer Declan, didn't quite realise how much I'd miss the dark skies of autumn/winter! No improvement in the weather here tonight so I've been trying to make a lunar mosaic.

    This you training for the marathon Declan? For some reason NGC 1977 has just come to mind! lol Maybe there will be one of these in the Dublin Marathon? IC2948 ok I'll stop there! Hee, hee.

    Best wishes

    It's the running man nebula Declan, the other one is the running chicken nebula cause there's always someone who runs a marathon in fancy dress!

    It's just my silly sense of humour!

    I've no idea who names these things Declan. I came across The Running Chicken Nebula ages ago and it always makes me laugh!

    But which came first IC 2948 or RAFGL 2688?


    Egg Nebula - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Sorry Declan, I just couldn't help myself!

    Ok I'm going now! Back to my Mosaic!

    Will post it in the lunar forum later.
