Deep Sky Images from Stellafane 2022
By Steve Grimsley
Only one night, Saturday, was ideal for images. I captured two medium field areas of the sky with multiple objects in each. The constellations where these images were taken are Cepheus and Cassiopeia. A few images captured before this year’s Stellafane are also included.
Following the main presentation, our recurring monthly presentations will include Constellation of the Month by Terri Zittritsch
