Definitely .... Unfortunately I have sold my mount so my kit is out of action in the UK until I can get the new mount up and running....but the skies are getting lighter so Im looking at getting back up for the new season.

Lovely rich image Peter.

Its a bit low for us in the UK isn't it ?

 

I noticed a chap on SGL recently posted an image of Omega Centauri from the Algarve in Portugal.

I think he mentioned it was low down : about 5º above the horizon if i remember correctly.

It it an object thats visible for you at your remote site in Spain ?

I grabbed a few frames of the Triffid years back in the UK but it was really in the dirt  .....its low even in Spain....I haven't even thought about Omega Centauri ...will have to check how low it is.

It would be great if you could bag an image of it. 

It really is an amazing object ; literally the best cluster in the entire sky.

Nicely done Peter.

It must be summer in Spain 😎

 

I've also had a crack at it from here and its tough.

I saw Omega from Portugal and IIRC it was a real horizon hugger.

If I can get down low enough with the observatory wall then I will definitely have a go....

The weather has improved but the observatory roof is like a yoyo with the passing cloud....its unseasonal....im hoping it will get back to normal soon
