Astronomy Report – November 1st



Name: Luis Diaz
Crew: 285
Date: 11/01/2023
Robotic Telescope Requested: MDRS-WF
Objects to be Imaged this Evening: NGC 281 (Pacman nebula) and maybe others.
Images submitted with this report: Orion Nebula (M41)
Problems Encountered: Just the same problems with the "Mount error" and "Camera error"; however, Peter is helping me to fix it.
IMPORTANT!!!!!!!! : Out of the entire sequence of photographs of the 5 bands, I found an anomaly in one of the photographs of the green band where 3 bright points are visible in a 3-MINUTE exposure photograph. Due to the exposure time, it doesn’t seem to be a meteor or satellites. I hope that Mission Support can assist me in delving into this and finding a possible explanation. If further information is needed on this matter, please let me know. Attached is a comparison between a photograph similar to all the others where the 3 points are not visible and the particular photo I mentioned earlier.
