This is the other Messier Object I imaged this evening.

This is one of the widefield Messier Objects I imaged tonight.
I haven’t been blogging much – I’ve been busy and the weather hasn’t cooperated. Tonight is quite nice, however and I’m imaging a couple things – this is the Moon.

It was a nice night last night – I had a chance to share Saturn, Mars and M13 with some neighbors and afterward took this image of M20, the Trifid Nebula.

Last night at Cloudland Canyon, the Barnard Astronomical Society had a star party/meteor watch. I took 3 of my boys and we watched the meteor shower. Overall, we saw 20 or 30 meteors total – not a lot – but it was neat anyway. The shot above is the only one of a meteor that I got. It’s in the upper left corner.

At a certain point, because of the atmosphere of Venus, there’s a kind of teardrop shape as it completely enters the Sun – this is at that moment.
This image is from the start of the Transit. More images soon.

Mars is shrinking quickly in the telescope, but I was still able to make out some detail and the camera was able to capture it. It’s about half the size it was a month ago.

I’m not willing to stay up until past 2 to try to image the recent Mars “anomaly”. (Which is probably just a high altitude storm) I did take this quick shot this evening, though.
