Jupiter and the Horsehead

November 18, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Relatively brief night tonight.  It's nice and cool, but transparency isn't the greatest.

I started the evening (around 11p) with a look at Jupiter, and took some vid of a moon (Europa?) just as it was entering Jupiter's disk.  I'll have to process it and see how it came out.

I spent about another hour with the horsehead region, and guiding (using PHD) was fine for the first hour  when running 5min exposures, but I set up another hour worth of 10min exposures, and guiding got wonky again.  I took a screenshot of my graph in PHD so I intend to post it to the AstroPhysics list tomorrow to see if anyone can give me any ideas.

Got a bit done, and was a pleasant enough evening.
