M57 - 23.10.2021 at 19.30 Paimio Observation number 101937

Visibility Unclassified

Eeva-Kaisa Ahlamo, Turun Ursa

A small star jumping video for the M57. (In the second video, pictures without patterns.) In the era of GoTo telescopes, wanhaa decent star jumping is rarely practiced a little unnecessarily. That’s why I tried what that would look like in video format. I added the fixed points and patterns of my own route.

The tire mist was the first item I found on my own first tube at the age of 12 by star jumping. It was behind the work and the pain when there was no idea what the route was supposed to look like through the pipe, and there was no real idea of the scale, but yes it was finally found then. Ah that joy!

      Planetary nebula is the remnant of a death star. It could be ring-shaped, disc-like or spread out rather irregularly.

      With the exception of some nearest objects planetary nebulae have a small apparent diameter and they need a rather big instrument to be visible.
