Uranus

Uranus

Forgot how long I didn't check on Uranus…

It is time to revisit.

Made a few sets of 12s images using an i'-band filter.

The setup was the usual

Telescope : C14 (2135mmFL)

CCD : SBIG ST-10XME

Mount : Paramount ME

The aim was to catch a few Uranus moons and play with then making a smal animation.

Above we can see Uranus motion against the background stars.

Below we see the moons orbital motion.

Some blur from the sky conditions show up in the last frame… forgot to flip the image upside down.

The session was on the night of OCT 6th and lasted for about 2h.

It was a lot of fun
