Sun in h-alpha line, April 3, 2019

In the afternoon, I captured the Sun a little in the line of hydrogen. There were practically no large prominences, however, there is one active zone NOAA 12737. Tomorrow I will try to capture this area in more detail.

M51 galaxy, March 25, 2019.

In the galaxy M51 “Whirlpool” appeared an interesting star – AT2019ABN. This is a possible supernova, or “imposter”. The star has already dropped the outer part of the shell, but the nuclear reactions are still burning. It is possible that in a few tens of days its magnitude will increase by 2-4. At the moment, its magnitude in the R-filter is about 16.5m. In principle, it is available for shooting from an aperture of 100 mm or more. I recommend astrophotographers to take pictures of this star – the data may have scientific value, and there is a great chance to photograph a supernova explosion.

Color Moon, 21 march 2019

In the evening, the weather was good, I decided to take a little picture of the Moon in color. I tried to shoot a few dozen frames for stacking – I used to get the color from a single frame. I shot through several telescopes – Sky-Watcher BKP150750 and Celestron Nexstar 8 SE, but so far I have processed images only from Sky-Watcher. A little more I admired the Moon through binoculars JJ-Astro 22х100 – big, bright, large.
