The Noctilucent Clouds are Back

In summer I always take a brief look north, just in case the noctilucent clouds appear. Most times I'm disappointed. However tonight (24th June) there was brief, rather dim display, but it is always worth a mention. They started to appear at about 10:10pm local time, and got to their brightest at 10:30pm, after which they faded away. As you can see, on this occasion, they are rather confused, and lack any interesting structure, but ...

Day Star

Capturing stars during broad daylight is a little tricky, but the brightest ones can be seen. I tried for Betelgeuse, but it is too near the sun in the sky at the moment. I then went for Regulus in Leo, and I was more successful. This is a composite of 7 sharp images.

The Sombrero Galaxy.

This is the best season to bag galaxies, so I thought I would have a go at the 'Sombrero' in Virgo. (M104) I managed to tweak the mount to track slightly better. 11 x 45second exposures were stacked to give this image.

I have viewed this galaxy previously as a 'fuzzy', but I've not tried to image it before. It is easily visible in a 4" telescope, and even in binoculars. What you tend ...
