We unexpectedly got a few clear hours (unfortunately not Moonless) on New Year’s Day 2013 – this is after a whole month of cloud and rain! We are now back to the cloud and rain again, so that one clear night was definitely a Godsend.
Here is a 2-framer of the Sirius region taken with the mini-WASP array. Sirius really blazes away in the centre of the image, so bright it makes you squint even at the image Noel Carboni put the two images together and I did a little final processing as I don’t think Noel has quite finished with this one yet. No matter – I wanted to share this one with you ASAP Happy New Year to you all.
