Image of the Month – February 2013

I’ve just noticed that for some reason the new Image of the Month hasn’t automatically popped up.  Strange – absolutely no idea what went wrong there.  Never mind – here it is – just a little late.  The February 2013 Image of the Month is that recent single star image of Sirius I took using the mini-WASP array.  This is a 2-framer of the region, and what I find remarkable is the fact that magnitude 17 stars can be found quite close in to magnitude -1.46 Sirius.  This is testament to both Noel’s processing skills and to the incredible dynamic range of the Starlight Xpress M26C one-shot colour camera.  Also says a great deal for the well-overflow control of the M26C 🙂
