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 :D
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 :D Non pensavo di riuscire a prendere le deboli nubi galattiche della zona del Sagittario, ed invece...:D
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 :D
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 ...:D
This is 41x25 sec with Canon 450D and Tecnosky 80/480 reduced to 384mm.
