DescriptionNo this is not the Moon, it is the cresent Venus as the ISS made a transit accross Venus from the driveway of a friend of mine. Frank Garner and I have been waiting a long time for this opportunity. Please note, this is a daytime pass at 4:38 P.M. local time. The sun is still 33 degrees high and 30 degrees from Venus. Venus was shining at a magnitude of -4.2 and the brightness of the ISS was -1.2,

EquipmentOrion 80mm ED Apo Refractor mounted on 10" Meade LX200. Camera: Canon 40D modified for Ha sensitivity 4 x 4 minute sub exposures combined with Registax and finished processing in Photoshop.
DescriptionNebula Eats Comet. Comet Hartley 103P passes within a degree of the Pac Man nebula, NGC 281 on October, 1, 2010. With the problem of light pollution at my location, I used a UHC filter to darken the sky and enhance the nebula and comet. The faint blue-green glow of the comet contrasts nicely with the red hydrogen clouds in the nebula.
