Last night...well early this morning I guess, right after moonset, I tried another star trail shot. I wanted to get Jupiter in this one as it was high in the sky.

Not hard to tell which trail Jupiter is! The exposure is slightly over 67 minutes.

Neat picture Keith. I really have to try that with my camera some time.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you shape that piece of wood down to match the rest of the railing. Once again, I would have never thought to make the repair this way. Let alone have the talent to follow through with it.

Keith that is still a mighty beautiful rail, there is no doubt that it will look perfect after you finish with it.

Are you going to be able to see the super nova tonight? Here is a link about it, hopefully I can get out for a little while this evening if it isn't cloudy.

Hey that reminds me...

Isn't there a Super Nova coming into view right now in the northern sky? This one supposedly burned out around twenty five million years ago or something like that and is just now becoming visible to earthlings.

Thanks for the link Jim. The s/n has been reported on the Sky & Telescope website for awhile now. I sent a note to my pal Randy in Nanaimo, and he was able to image the s/n several days ago.

We are expecting clear skies here tonight, so I will take a scope outside and get it set up and ready to go.

The commentators in these articles make it sound like it's a piece of cake to spot this s/n. But note that the one well informed chap stated that you need binocs like 20 x 80, or 25 x 100 in order to see it. Even at that, you will have to have the binocs attached to something solid so they don't move.

The target isn't as easy as it sounds.

Good luck to everyone trying to get a look. In astronomical terms, this is a pretty rare event.

Good guess, closer to 21 million light years...but what's 4 million light years among friends?

WHOOPS!!! Now I feel really dumb! I didn't see that before I made my remarks. Now I get it!

Keith, are they correct when they say the best time to see it is just after it gets dark out?

Is your friend Randy going to try to take pictures of it?

Yes, as soon as it gets dark look at the tail end of the big dipper...actually a triangle shape using the end two stars in the dipper handle will lead you to the pinwheel galaxy.

Once the moon gets up it will destroy the "seeing" and you will need a bigger scope to see anything. Your grandson's scope will be able to spot the pinwheel without any trouble.

I will check with Randy to see if he's going to go for a second shot. I also rather imagine Rich will be using his 14" Meade tonight. He has taken some truly professional grade pics with his scope. That's the one that is kept at the observatory at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo.

I'm going to use the 4" refractor and I may take the 10" dob out as well. Trouble is, I only have one pair of eyes.

Thank you.

It's starting to sprinkle here. I hope the clouds pass over soon.
