A few days ago forecast was very kind – starting from midnight there will be clear sky – it said. Well, not this time. Clouds slowly broke up around 3am, so it left not much of the night. I took a look into a few winter sky gems and then pointed telescope to target I have chosen some time ago. It is Sh2-235 molecular hydrogen clouds complex in Auriga.
Soon it turned out that this 2.5 hours spent on this area is far too little for any pretty result. I think I need at least four times more. Except of the brightest part these clouds are very faint…
Anyway, here it is what I gathered so far. 15×10 minutes with Baader Ha filter, Photoline 130 refractor and QHY163M camera on EQ6 mount.
