Photo of the Month for March, 2017

M22

© 2017 Klaus Brasch

Here is one of M-22 that I took last summer with the C-14 HD at f/7 on a night of fairly good seeing. This is a stack of 3 x 3 minute exposures at ISO 1600 with the Canon 6D and IDAS LPS -V4 filter. In my opinion M-22 is a more impressive cluster than M-13, but we don't usually appreciate that because of its relatively low latitude and smack in the Milky Way. It is truly an awesome sight in the southern hemisphere where it appears directly overhead, but there of course it has even greater competition from Omega Centauri and 47 Tucanae.

Title: “Detection of Exoplanets”

In the last two decades, astronomers have detected thousands of planets around stars other than the Sun. Their number and properties imply that the universe has many places where life could exist.

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.
