Description

Nell'ultimo giorno disponibile (almeno per quanto riguarda la mia strumentazione) sono riuscito a fotografare la congiunzione tra Marte e la cometa C/2013 A1 Siding Spring nel medesimo campo L'altezza alle 19.40 era di 11°, per arrivare agli 8° alle 20.05. Poi c'era la collina

Era la quinta volta che tentavo di riprendere questo raro fenomeno, le prime due con le nuvole, la terza con umidità, la quarta pessimo seeing Non pensavo di riuscire a prendere le deboli nubi galattiche della zona del Sagittario, ed invece...

Si tratta di 41x25 sec con Canon 450D e Tecnosky 80/480 ridotto a 384mm.

The last day available (at least for my location and strumentation) i managed to photograph the conjunction between Mars and the Comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring in the same field The height from horizon at 19.40 was 11°, to get to 8° at 20.05. Then there was the hill

It was the fifth time that I tried to take this rare phenomenon, the first two with clouds, the third with moisture, the fourth bad seeing I didn't think i cound be able to pick up faint Galactic clouds of Sagittarius, and instead ...

This is 41x25 sec with Canon 450D and Tecnosky 80/480 reduced to 384mm.
