COLD AGAIN. (11/03/13)

I woke this morning to a sprinkling of snow. It brightened up a very cool walk._V0G5903_edited-1 The Promenade Ravenglass.

It is wonderful weather, a bit slippery underfoot but still bright, dry and windless. Magic.

I’m hoping the weather will stay like this for the next few days as Comet Pan Starrs is due in the evening sky from tomorrow. I’ll try for a big stacked image of it. Might even go the whole hog and pop in a few light and dark frames. Just which lens to use……I’ll pop out this evening and reconnoitre the job.

Have a good week.

    1. Bob it will be near the western horizon. just below and to the left a bit of the new moon. This link may help with rough times.

      Unless you can get up high then it will need to be a clear night It's about Mag 2 so like Sirius or a bit dimmer.

    2. Bob, here is another link. This takes a few minutes to set up.

      STELLARIUM

      I haven't checked but it may be possible to load Pan starrs as a plug in. The programme is free open source and must be set to your location.

    1. Horst, yes I'll have a go with her...I won't if by some miracle I manage. It looks as if it could be a chilly job.

  9. I do love the crisp bright light of the snow. That and the distorted warm light of evening are my favourites. One day I'll see snow again.

    1. This was proper snow Graham. Dry and dusty. Not the normal wet horrid stuff we get. There was not much of it.

  11. I'm not wishing for winter but I could do with a bit of cooling right now, might have to try to absorb some of your first scene. Good luck with the comet.

    1. Pauline, this winter has been a non event but is dragging on a bit.
      Thanks there were some reasonable pictures of it from New Zealand taken last week. You can't see it now.
