During e clear (and cold night -3°C) are several comets observed and spectroscopic observations of several Be-stars in high resolution. comets that are observed are: 31P (not detected), 38P, 46P, 60P, 64P, 123P, 171P, 164P, 247P, C/2018 W2 (AFRICANO).
Be stars which are observed are: AX Mon, Electra, OT Gem, Pleione, V442 And. Also VV Cep was observed in high resolutions with the LHiResIII.
During a period of clear skies during about 4 hours, i could obtain several high resolution spectroscopic observations of Be-stars (H-alpha detail): 2 Ori, 18 Gem, 105 Tau, zet Tau and HD 21362.
comet observations on 21 jan with disturbing moonlight (99% moon) until high clouds were coming in. Observed comets are: 29P/S-W1, 64P and 46P. Comets 198P, P/2019 A3 are also observed but not detected.
update of Afρ-plot for comet 64P and comet 46P are made on behalf of CARA consortium
spectroscopic observations in high resolution (H-alpha detail) are made for several stars: V442 And, Pleione, Merope, HD 30453, HD 20210, BK Cam, 69 Ori.
a USB remote control unit was added to the LHIRES-III spectrograph to remotely control the calibration lamp and flat lamp. Information can be found here.
with a Nikon D7100 and Tamron tele 150-600mm are several pictures taken during the lunar-eclips from 4:10 UT to end of the eclips and the moon was below of my FOV.
comet observations on evening 20 jan. 2019 with moonlight 99%, until clouds where coming in: observed comets are: 29P/S-W1, 64P and 171P
spectroscopic observations of several stars , with BRIXIIS-II observatory (C11 + LHiReSIII spectrograph) , are made: 11 Cam, gam Cas, HD 50658, VV Cep
I observed comet 60P/TSUCHINSAN with a remote telescope from Nerpio, Spain on 9 jan. 2019 on 5:12 UT.
follow- up of comet 46P/WIRTANEN with remote telescope from New Mexico (iTelescope.net): 46P/W on 4 jan, 46P/W on 5 jan.
I decided to open my observatory to observe some comets as follow-up, especially 64P. I have only 1 … 1.5 hour because clouds where coming.. observed comets are 46P and 64P. Spectroscopic observation of the binary HD20120 was obtained with the C11 telescope and LHiResIII spectrograph as a first test ot participate with my French friends for a project.
Due the long period of clouds and bad weather, i took a remote telescope from Nerpio, Spain to make some comet observations to follow-up. Observed comets are: 38P, 46P and 64P. 64P experienced a possible outburst by the increase of the Af(rho) parameter from 152 cm to 279 cm.
