Mars very close to opposition 2018-08-04, Schimborn, Germany
Very bad seeing, very low altitude (ecliptic is low in summer), I am impressed what still came out.

There was one of the biggest dust storms in decades active on Mars at this time as well.

The Orion Nebula (also known as Messier 42, M42, or NGC 1976) is a diffuse nebula situated in the Milky Way, being south of Orion's Belt in the constellation of Orion. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. The M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across. It has a mass of about 2000 times the mass of the Sun.

Beobachtungsbericht: Italien/Kalabrien 25.08.2016

Beobachtungsdaten:

5" Reisedobson

Ein Teleskop auf Flugreisen mitzunehmen ist schon eine kleine Herrausforderung. Es soll klein und leicht sein. Aber gleichzeitig so viel Öffnung wie möglich.

Schon vor einiger Zeit habe ich mir von Skywatcher den Heritage Dobson (130mm Öffnung, 650mm Brennweite (f/5)) gekauft. Es hat einen Schiebetubus um die Tubuslänge zu halbieren. Das Teleskop ist an einer Einarmschwinge befestigt. Diese ist leider nur mit Werkzeug zerlegbar und auch nicht für häufiges auf- und abbauen gedacht.
