Hi and welcome to another year of POTM and following what seems to have been a really cloudy/foggy round these parts month it's a wonder there has been chance for anyone to have got some pictures but some brave folks have so here goes:

 

DSO

Stash is getting the hang of guiding with his M81 & 82 image

plus he was out earlier in the month with a nice Rosette nebula and an M1 Crab

Ibbo has been busy with a set of DSOs,

SH2-157 Lobster claw

Thats good going to get that amount of data in a poor month like this one Steve. I still reckon your nocturnal Steve;)

 

Graham gave us one that I havent heard of Berk 59 in Ha

Brady gave us a Rosette and Horse Head

Sharpie78 gave us a Rosette here

I even managed a DSO  entry but cheated a bit by keeping warm and using some old data:)

 

Lunar

Only 3 entries this month

One from me and one from Tbird of the actual moon

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/12557-moon-4th-jan/

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/12571-moon-09-01-2017-from-nlas/

and one from Perkil8r with some moon dust prepping for Stargazing Live event at Long Eaton School.

Planets

Only one entry and thats Tbirds Mars & Neptune shot

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/12551-mars-and-neptune-02-01-2017/

 

Solar

Well it was Ibbo all the way last month with 12, yes 12  images of the Sun in Ha with some super animations as well. It must be a microclimate where Steve lives, nice and sunny :-)

My favourites out of his posts are:-

5th of January animation

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/12561-sol-5-1-2017-ha-animation/ the proms are particularly striking in this.

and the 25th January

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/12608-sol-25-1-2017-ha/ its nice to see there's still a lot going on up there.

 

Widefield

Only one in this category, hey its Me :D I could not resist the Moon, Venus and Mars conjunction.

 

 

So thanks for all the entries guys and now it falls to me to announce the first POTM of 2017.

The image that made me go WOW was Ibbos Bubble in HST colours.

Its depth and colours are excellent but  the composition with the bubble, cluster and nebulosity just make it. I hope your going to print, frame it and hang it somewhere prominent  Steve, it deserves it.
