The accompanying image made Picture of the Month in the March 2007 issue of Astronomy Now!  You can find this one on page 92.  The image taken with the Sky 90/M25C combination and shows the Cone Nebula, Christmas Tree cluster region in Monoceros.  The beautiful little golden open cluster at the bottom/centre of this image is designated Trumpler 5.  There was no additional H-alpha data taken for this image, something I shall attempt to do during Winter 2007.

Astronomy Now Magazine are printing our picture of Messier 101 as a Messier challenge image, we are really happy with this image especially as it was incredibly cold when I was outside keeping an eye on the equipment!  The image is a single frame taken on the Hyperstar/SXV-H9C combination.

We’ve obviously convinced Astronomy Now that our pictures are worth seeing – they are publishing our latest image of The Double Cluster in Perseus (central region) in the November issue on page 101.

This image was taken as a single Hyperstar frame using the SXV-H9C camera.
