This image was created from RGB data captured on the 29th and 30th May 2009 and Hydrogen-Alpha data captured during July 2006. The RGB data consists of 22 x 5mins Red, 20 x 5mins Green and 16 x 5mins Blue. The Hydrogen-Alpha data consists of 18 x 15mins and was blended with the red filtered data to enhance the contrast of the nebulosity surrounding the star Sadr. All data was captured with a Skywatcher 80ED refractor, ATIK ATK16HR ccd camera, Astronomik RGB and 6nm Hydrogen Alpha filters from my back garden in Derby.

A shot of the Moon/Mercury/Pleiades event taken on 2009 April 26 from Chelmsford as mentioned in the Sky Notes at the Out of London meeting. This is a single 2s exposure taken at 2027UT using a Canon EOS 10D, ISO 200, 200mm, f/2.8L lens at f/3.5. Tripod mounted and undriven. The sky was remarkably transparent and Mercury could be followed almost down to the horizon.

An image of the bright supernova painfully close to the core of NGC 4088. I had extremely good seeing last night, with very tight star images, and noticed that the image of the SN was slightly elongated E-W. After much investigation I unearthed a really high quality image taken at Kitt Peak which shows there is a bright region (star/HII??) near the core just 1.5" from the supernova. Further processing of my images managed to almost separate object and SN in my own image. As a final test I rescaled and blinked my image at 1000% scale with the best pre-discovery image I could find..... This clearly showed the supernova blinking just 1.5" east of the existing core brightness. In all the other images I've studied the supernova appears circular or just slightly elongated, even in the Bernd Gahrken image with an 80cm instrument. The older image (NB, it's mirror flipped) at AOP, clearly shows the permanent bright object in this galaxy's core. http://www.noao.edu/outreach/aop/observers/n4088shade.jpg I have not even attempted photometry in these cluttered galaxy core surroundings!!! Of course, part of the reason my star images were so sharp was that the galaxy was so close to the zenith!
