Picture of the Month February 2020

 

Wow what a wet and windy month, storm following storm but despite that folks have been out grabbing photons, well done to all. There's been some great images posted and here is a précis round up:

 

Comets etc

Graham posted his hits for February

Deep Sky

Ibbo gave us a really nice Cone and Foxfur, nice processing and plenty of data.

Sheila also had a bash at this here

Allan the Plumber went deep with the Flaming Star Nebula, tons of data in there, well done

A well done to Ron Clarke for bagging a low M41, I know how difficult this one is from our latitudes

and he also bagged M82 and 51

and a Monkey and Bode

ChrisP managed to catch a bit of IFN with M81 and M82

and plus an M106

Ibbo also grabbed M81 and M82 separately then mosaiced them here

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17288-m8182-2-pane-mosaic/

and ngc891

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17309-ngc891-lrgb/

Lunar

Chris P started the month off with an Earthshine Moon

and later in the month

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17303-earthshine-moon-27th-feb-2020/

 

Planetary

Ibbo gave us a shot of Venus with cloud detail

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17232-venus-uvirir-a-bit-of-cloud-detail/

Sunnyphil gave us a Venus too

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17272-venus/

Then the Venus and Moon proximity was captured by

Ron Clarke

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17301-the-moon-venus/

and even I managed to get out with a cam

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17302-moon-and-venus-2702202/

and Ibbo

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17304-venus-luna-26-2-2020/

 

 

Solar

Ibbo gave us a full disc early on in the month

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17224-sol-6-2-2020-ha/

 

Widefield

Ron Clarkegave us a couple of atmospheric constellations

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17193-a-couple-of-quickies/

 

ChrisP was at it again with his Redcat

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/topic/17254-barnards-bogeyman-m78-et-aleven-more-data/

 

Ok so thats the round up now the difficult job of choosing one because the quality of images is superb this month, however management says I have to choose so here goes:-

 

The two images I keep going back to are ChisPs Earthshine Moon and Allan the Plumbers  IC410. So flicking between the two I reckon Allans IC410 (the starry version)just gets my vote this month, well done Allan and all who posted pics, keep em coming.

Top effort there Allan, lovely image.   Thanks for the PoTM Phil, much appreciated.
