WYAS held a special opening at the Rosse observatory on March 4th as part of National Astronomy Week.
The theme was “Jupiter and its moons” The event was well attended by the public and club members. We had our 14” SCT in the dome operational, plus our 18”, 10”, 8” scopes and reverse binoculars all in use by the public.
We setup astrophotography on the 8” SCT and took these images during the night of Jupiter with a Phillips SPC800 web cam and Orion using a DSLR with a 40sec exposure at ISO3200.
All the photographs here were taken by members using either their own equipment or that of the society. Their work can be found in the Index below under type of object, or the name of the photographer.
