These can be seen on the gallery page of the Kerry Astronomy Club website.


You've got some very nice pics in that gallery. First time I've seen it. Impressive... :wink:

I was especially jealous of your Aurora pics.... :)

Everyone in Ireland buys Meade, and they all buy them from Lidl.

Thats a good image Michael,
Looks like a webcam image, or maybe the LPI
what scope did you use for that??
I also tried abit of imaging last night, but as there was quite a wind blowing where I was, the planetary detail was very poor, probabily the worst I've seen it in a long time.

The moon had that real "I'm looking at this from the bottom of a swimming pool effect", yet the sky was particularily transparent, good for deepsky, so I didnt bother getting shots of saturn and the ones of the moon are terrible :(
on the other hand, orion nebula and the comet were fabulous.

Thanks for the comments,

James,

Was that with a Canon or LPI?


Neither, a Philips ToUcam Pro PCVC740K, to give it its full title.

What a difference a "few miles up the road" makes


When the wind is from the south I sometimes find that Tralee gets a clear portion of sky just to the lee of the mountains, not too often though.

Dave,

See above and the telescope was my 222mm f5.77 dobsonian on the equatorial platform for tracking. I was really just recording a video to try to quantify a slight error I have in the tracking speed. Using the apparent diameter of Saturn and the drift between the first and last frame. I agree with you, the seeing was terrible last night (and yesterday for the image of AR10720, sunspot), but clear skies have been so few recently.
