Photo of the Month for November, 2017

The Heart Nebula, IC 1805

© 2017 Klaus Brasch

The Heart Nebula, IC 1805, Sharpless 2-190, which lies some 7500 light years away from Earth in the Perseus Arm of our Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia. At magnitude around 14, it is not readily visible in amateur telescopes. This image was taken over several nights with an AP-155 refractor at f/5.2 through an IDAS LPS V4 filter. It is a composite some 10 x 3-5 minute exposures shot with a modified Canon 6D at ISO 3200-6400 under very dark skies.

Activities for November and December, 2017



Monthly Meeting at Lowell Observatory
Saturday, November 4, 2017

Title: CAS Member Activity Presentations

Each year many CAS members are active in the pursuit of their avocation, Amateur Astronomy. At this meeting 4-6 members will present 10-15 minute overviews of their astronomical activities and achievements they were involved in during the preceding year. With several members traveling to view the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 at varying locations along the eclipse center line, this event should be well represented.

CAS Monthly Meetings and Astronomical Programs are held the Saturday closest to the Full Moon at the Mars Hill Campus of Lowell Observatory, Hendricks Center for Planetary Studies Auditorium (6:45 pm - 8:00 pm., unless otherwise noted) followed by refreshments, and informal discussion. Meetings are open free to the public.
