Considering the low solar activity at present, its good to see some prominences as evidence of increasing magnetic activity on the sun. Indeed, its been nice to see the sun at all! Photograph was taken with a Canon 1000D SLR at prime focus on a 400mm telescope fitted with a Hydrogen-Alpha filter. Exposure was 1/350 sec at f11

NGC 3178 (right) NGC 3729 (left) and Hickson 56 (below centre) This group of galaxies in Ursa Major passes overhead in late spring. This image was recently compiled from exposures taken at the spring Kelling star party under the dark Norfolk skies. I used a 100 mm refractor and a Starlight Xpress HX916 CCD camera. The exposure was 2 hrs 30 mins in total duration. 105 mins luminance binned 1 x 1 and 15 mins each colour binned 1x1. All sub exposures were 300 seconds long. The image is about 50 minutes of arc wide and North is up. Peter Carson.
