June 2010 Astrophotography

Here are June's astrophotos. Not much in terms of quantity, but more than adequate in terms of quality. The bad news is that June was pretty much a cloud-out in the thin, fickle type. Clear one minute, cloudy the next, no time for an all-night shoot. The good news was that it was clear for two bg events: the Lagoon Nebula-Ceres transit (2 of 3 here) and the start of a lunar eclipse.

In terms of quantity, July is so far looking to be a lot better for deep sky.

Enjoy these in the meantime.

M92, the last of the great spring globulars (M13, 5, and 3 are the others).

Start of a lunar eclipse, note how the top of the Moon is darker than the bottom.
