Mystery Object

While taking a wide field view of Comet Wirtenan, I spotted an interest looking fuzzy on the same shot. I stacked 10 images and it looked even more fuzzy. (See arrow)

I thought it was a distant galaxy, but it isn't on any chart. (It seems rather large not to be)
However, when I zoomed in I got a bit of a shock. I've not seen anything like this before.

Has anyone come ...

November

November was a poor month, due to weather and a bad back restricting my viewing and photography.

I managed a few Sun photos in hydrogen alpha light but the Sun was very quiet.

I took some more Perseus shots but did not finish my mosaic. I'm hoping to complete it in December or January.

I caught two meteors on "film".

Here is the full report: https://sungazer127mak.blogspot.com/201 ... -2018.html

Comet Wirtanen

29th November 2018
Comet Wirtanen is climbing out of the murky horizon, and the moon is keeping back for a while. However clouds insisted on making an appearence too, making this a very frustrating observing session.

The comet was 13 degrees above the horizon when I took this 60 sec photo. It isn't particulary bright at the moment, especially being so low down. However it did look distinctly green! I could see no tail. I ...

Advice needed

My daughter (aged 8) has requested a telescope for Christmas. She is interested in looking at planets and stars (obviously.) I have been to a local supplier who has advised the Skywatcher Startravel 102 SynScan AZ GOTO Telescope. Is this the best piece of kit for an absolute beginner? Obviously at age 8 they want to see things pretty clear and pretty close. Can anyone offer any advice? This is stargazing for dummies (us, not ...

Bode's Galaxy

Messier 81 or Bode's Galaxy is located in Ursa Major. It is easily found through binoculars or a small telescope. If you imagine the 'bowl' of the Dipper to be a bad square, then draw an imaginary line from the bottom left star to the top right. Extend that line by the same amount and that is the location of M81. (M82 - another galaxy is nearby) The bright oval core is normally all that ...
