Astronomy Report

Name: Aditya Krishna Karigiri Madhusudan

Crew: 292

Date: 12/02/2024


Robotic Telescope Requested: MDRS WF

Objects to be Imaged this Evening: NGC 1952 Crab Nebula

Images submitted with this report: M51 Whirlpool galaxy

Additional Notes:

1. Skynet shows MDRS WF telescope is down with a camera error.

2. Kindly provide your feedback on the attached image. I know the galaxy is too far (30 million light years) to image, so not many details of the galaxy are visible. I just wanted to try out and experiment with the telescope.

3. I think the image with the luminous filter is overexposed. Please find the final image with the luminous layer attached below. Some details of the galaxy are not visible with this layer added.
