The occultation of a star by asteroid Ennomos (4709) - 11 August 2011 - updated

I found in my inbox an e-mail informing about a possibility of an occultation 9.2 mag star (TYC 2224-01391-1) by asteroid Ennomos (4709). I could not make up my mind whether to go or not because the weather was neither good nor bad. There were plenty of clouds in the sky. Finnaly, after an analysis clouds from satellite pictures I decided to try it. It was the right decision.

Total Lunar Eclipse - 10 December 2011

The total lunar eclipse was on the program a few minutes ago. Unfortunately there were too many clouds. I was able to capture it just after beginning and one photo during the show. Nothing more. It is pity. It could be a nice eclipse.

Dark nebula B3, B4, B5 a IC348 - 29 November 2011

When I was considering what to capture during this night I found dark nebulas (B3,4 also known as LDN 1740) in the bottom of constellation Perseus in a sky map. The nebulas are very faint and it is very complicated object for DLSR to capture. Althouth the result is not good I decided to show it.

There is my another attempt of this globular cluster. You can compare my first photo of M15 that I took almost 6 years ago and this one. The difference is obvious.

Crater Copernicus - 22 August 2011

I decided to take a picture of the Moon and then a detail view of crater called Copernicus and an area around it. I had bought a special IR filter (742nm) for capturing planet in infra light several months ago. The result is quite good.

Total Lunar Eclipse - 15 June 2011

After 3 years I could see this phenomenon again. It is a nice show and you do not need any expensive lenses for observing. The beginning was hiden behind clouds, so nothing was visible. After a while the sky was getting clearer a clearer and finally I could see our Moon in red colours. There are some photos.

There was an astrophotographic workshop in my very old wooden cottage ("drevenica" in Slovak - English speakers can learn a special word) from 15 to 17 April 2011. It was focused on processing of astronomical photos, processing of HDRI photos and lots of other topics from practical astronomy.

Galaxy M101 (Pinwheel Galaxy) - 05 March 2011

The M101 Galaxy (also known as Pinwheel Galaxy) is one of the best beautiful spiral galaxies. However, only core is quite symetric. After longer exposures you can see that it is unsymetric. The distance from the Earth is about 25 million light years and you can find it in the constellation of Ursa Major.
