Imaging 26-27/5/2016
Roger Samworth


Lots of high cloud around last night but managed to get some images.

Mars and Saturn are difficult targets this year, of course, as they are so low down. Also as luck would have it, the visible side of Mars is the bit without obvious features!
Anyway, here they are. I have also labelled up some of the Martian features that are there.

While in that bit of the sky I also imaged 3 DSOs. NGC 6309 is a tiny planetary nebula, M10 and M12 are globulars in Ophiuchus.

As a bonus extra, this morning's sun image from the window-sill is a nice juxtaposition of prominences, spots, filaments, and plages.
