- Planets – a few facts
The Sheffield Astronomical Society Imaging Challenge is run at the Beginner’s Evening, where the committee have selected an astronomical object of the month. Society members are invited to image the identified astronomical object and submit them to the committee for inclusion in the Imaging Challenge section of the Beginner’s Evening.
The rules are simple:
Remember: There are no bad images. Only opportunities to improve your ability as an astrophotographer, so get your images in!
Russell will present all submissions at the Beginner’s Evening to be held at the Ranmoor Parish Centre starting at 19:45 on Tuesday 24th January 2017.
This month’s Imaging Challenge is a double imaging challenge for September and October. Your targets are M13 “The Great Globular Cluster in Hercules” and M57 “The Ring Nebula”.
This month’s Imaging Challenge is Jupiter.
It’s a easy target at present, however the nights are drawing out and Jupiter will not be as well placed come September, so get those Jupiter images in before we lose it for a while!
This month’s Imaging Challenge is the well known gravitationally interacting galaxy pair Bode’s Nebula and the Cigar Galaxy, M81 and M82 in the constellation Ursa Major.
It’s nice and high in the sky at this time of year, so it’s an excellent opportunity to image a fantastic pair of deep sky objects.
