Nice start into spring

I had a really nice start into the spring observation season. Not only that I had some chance to do some observation in March, late April and May provided awesome wheather. And I got a new toy to play with, a DBK 21 from The Imaging Source - Simply awesome! So, what's new: I got nice shots from M45, M78 and M108. I did some sun observation whre I was lucky to observe really big active regions. And well, some planetary imaging done during the Austrian Astronomy Day at the Lower Austrian Public Observatory (NOe Volkssternwarte - Verein Antares), where we welcomed more than 200 visitors. The seeing was terrible, but the people got a nice impression of the procedures.
What's next: I'm preparing for the Venus transit!
Till then.
