Dear friends,
thanks a lot for looking and appreciating as it really helps to  do a better job here the skies are absolutely clear these days and hoping this would continue for more weekends, when we go out to shoot we always think of u people when a cool breeze hits us as tempeerature would fall to the mid 80 s and wonder what true dedication to astronomy might be when temperature goes close to freezing

i all its been quite some time and last weekend i shot two objects ,the heart nebula and the orion nebula both for about 90 minutes but realised it wasnt enough for the heart nebula ( being so low in the sky from Chennai)  heart nebula    orion nebula

Thanks for looking

11  General Category / Astronomy & Space / my last mars of 2008 on: September 15, 2008, 05:01:04 pm
hi this was the last mars pic i took at 0005 hrs on 6th jan this year(pls check with calsky from Chennai) but seems to have come better than my expectation and my conclusion is nothing beats seeing (if collimation and focus are right)

 Here is Ring Nebula which I shot from a  farm house with approaching thunderstorm and lightning . We also stopped by  on the roadside to photograph mercury with the 10 inch.We saw clouds approaching us,accuweather predicted a thunderstorm. We went to the farm house set up scope and we were covered by black clouds. It cleared however and I was able to image ring nebula. Next I aimed my scope towards helix nebula but clouds came again, this time we packed up and on the return journey visibility due to rain was 10 feet for a few minutes.
