Saturn, Venus, M3 and the Eskimo Nebula
After a fairly dry winter, spring hasbe come more unstable. It is difficult to do any astronomy these days and only when there is a gap in the clouds we can photograph planets and some deep sky objects.
In the following we show some images of Saturn, Venus, the globular cluster M3 and the Eskimo Nebula (the last one was shot in February). You can find the technical data in the images.
Please note that at sunset, seeing was good enough for what we usually find in the city (6/10). Thus, Venus looked well defined, allowing us to use a powermate 4X (f40) lens. That is the reason why Venus appears so large in the following picture.
