Moon and Sirius B – March 24, 2015
Despite some rather poor seeing conditions (3/10), with the Moon at only 30 degrees above horizon, I did get out for a brief imaging session together with Claudiu.
The designated scope for this session was again the 355mm Newtonian, at F/11 coupled with the DMK21 camera and a Baader Red filter.
The following images show some well-known lunar formations but under a less often observed illumination.
Also, I’ve managed to capture again the elusive component B of Sirius, a second time. The first time I had far better seeing conditions, but still, in the following images Sirius B is well resolved.
