Moon
Welcome to the lunar pages of my astronomy blog. To make things a little easier for you, I divided the lunar blog entries into four categories, Lunar basics, Lunar geology, Lunar log and Lunar scraps. In the Lunar basics section, I will publish small articles about a few basic lunar properties: the Moon's orbit, lunar phases, libration, locked rotation, apparent motion of the Moon across the sky, a table with basic lunar data etc. In the Lunar geology section, I will publish small articles about lunar geology. In the Lunar log I am filing my lunar observing reports. Finally, in Lunar scraps you will find various things that have to do with observing the Moon, short articles, images, books, links etc.

All sections are updated frequently, so hop in every now and again!

Deepsky
Welcome to the deepsky pages of my astronomy blog. To make things a little easier for you, I divided the deepsky blog entries into three categories, Deepsky binocular, Deepsky log and Deepsky TOP 100. In the “Deepsky binocular” section you will find interesting deepsky objects for binoculars. My deepsky observing reports can be found in the “Deepsky log”. The “Deepsky TOP 100 “is a series of 100 articles with my favorite deepsky objects.

All sections are updated frequently, so hop in every now and again!

Nikon Coolpix 4500

I just received my new digital camera, the Nikon Coolpix 4500. The eyepiece adaptors from Scopetronix (for the Televue Plossl 32mm) and Vixen (for all the 1.25 Lanthanums, except the 40mm) fit perfectly into the 28mm female lens thread on the inner side of the lens tube.

Starhop through Monoceros

I just added a starhop through Monoceros in the Focus On section.
You will find a star hop along the showpieces of this almost “invisible” winter constellation. Visit Beta Monocerotis, The Christmas Tree cluster, Hubble’s Variable Nebula, Pakan’s 3, The unicorn’s Horn, NGC 2301, M50 and NGC 2244. Finder charts, images and sketches included, as well as some basic data on all the objects.

Make your own deep sky observing list online

Yesterday I was checking some of my favourite sites, and I noticed that on messier45.com you now have the possibility to generate your own deepsky observing lists with the Deep Sky Browser. It is still a beta version, but I gave it a try and it worked perfectly. So if you are looking for a free generator for deep sky observing lists, follow this link.

Deep Sky Browser

There’s an online manual on how to create your personal deep sky observing lists.
