Images of Saturdays Occultation
First up is Tony Travaglia, of Omaru, New Zealand. Several of his pictures have graced these pages before. Here he has caught Antares shortly after emerging from behind the Moon. He had cloud problems too, but the clouds celared just before the occultation (click image to enlarge).
Next up is Chris Wyatt from Bendigo Victoria.
Cropped from the main image
taken with Canon PS S2IS (12 times optical zoom, 50 ASA for 1/8 sec).Highly processed to get best of both Moon & Antares (above & left of Moon, click to enlarge).
