Hello All,

Hope you are all well.

What weather we have had over Xmas and New Year...when it's clear, it's full Moon and cloudy otherwise!  A couple of images though from December and January to share:

NGC281 - PacMan Nebula

Details here:  https://www.astrobin.com/qj47u8/E/

Final version below but see other versions at the link above:



And the M81, M82 and NGC3077 triohttps://www.astrobin.com/2cl2c8/E/



Take care,

Roberto

I know what you mean Roberto, it's been awful.  Both extremely nice images and up to your usual high standard.

Well Roberto, that's two more than me this winter (still sorting out equipment woes) !

Great images and to get the IFN around M81 is quite an achievement.

Very Nice pics Roberto.  Really loved the Galaxies!  Even clicking on the pic and magnifying, the detail in M81 is amazing.

Best

Fantastic images! With the weather at the moment you dare not blink unless you miss a gap in the clouds.

Thank you Hugh and John.  Yes, any clearing has to be maximised for imaging time.  Sometimes after it rains transparency can be great but the chances have been few.

Lovely results as usual.

I'm glad you managed to get some clear sky.  It's been a dire winter for imaging :(
