Mars 2003

Submitted by: SherryB at Tue Sep 2 18:08:01 2003 UTC

I managed to capture this image August 30 between visitors while doing a star party at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory. Unfortunately, Mars' low altitude and our humid weather conspire to prevent really sharp images, at least so far. Telescope: 1.2M Cassegrain reflector. Magnification: 80x at the coude guiding focus. Camera: brain-dead HP 215 digital. Single exposure processed in PS for brightness and unsharp masking. © 2003 Sherry Buttnor. email: catlover@ii.ca


August 20/21 Aurora

Low-altitude aurora photographed at 0644Z August 21 (2344PDT); I just missed the ray display reported by others in this region around ~0600Z. This glow persisted for the entire 2.5 hours of my observing session without producing any further activity other than pulsing within the glow itself. © erry Buttnor,r, Metchosin BC Canada. catlover@ii.ca

Another view of the August 17/18 2003 storm. During the two "peak" storms, there was so much going on in the sky it was really difficult to know where to point the camera. Copyright © Sher Buttnor,r, Metchosin BC CANADA.
