Last night, 23/11/2014 was the first clear night in a month – and it was Moonless too 🙂 🙂

Gave the mini-WASP a good run, but packed up at midnight, which was actually a stupid thing to do – I should have carried on for at least a couple more hours.  Never mind.

Managed to grab 3 targets, one (Castor) was not a very clever or imaginative choice, but I am slowly learning.

Castor was 39 x 5-minute subs, P Cygni was 18 x 10-minute subs, and V V Cephei was 6 x 15-minute subs.

P Cygni is one of the most luminous stars in our galaxy and VV Cephei is one of the largest.  I wasn’t expecting to see the nice little planetary nebula NGC7139 in the V V Cephei image, so that was a great bonus.

All in all a very successful night’s imaging with the array.

Next outing – Carbon Stars 🙂
