P/Holmes 2

Submitted by: SherryB at Sat Oct 27 16:19:01 2007 UTC

A wider view of Comet Holmes. If you can manage to, get out and have a look at this one; it might be the oddest thing you ever see in the night sky. Use any optical aid you can...it even looks good in a finderscope! Photo details: Canon Digital Rebel XTi at prime focus on a Synta f/5 refractor working at f/10. Eight second exposure at ISO 800 with one equal dark frame. Comments welcome: popokinui@shaw.ca © 2007 Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin BC CANADA

The amazing Comet Holmes! What a strange and wonderful little visitor this has been. Let's hope it hangs around for a while so everyone has a chance to view it. Photo details: Canon Digital Rebel XTi at prime focus of Synta 102mm f/10 refractor working at f/20. Fifteen seconds at ISO 800, with one equal dark frame.

Macholtz in Taurus

Submitted by: SherryB at Sat Mar 19 17:32:01 2005 UTC

The local TV weather guy was attempting to explain where P/Macholtz was; I submitted this shot to him, and he aired it the next evening. Apparently, it did help. Camera: Nikon FE/Nikkor 50mm at f/4. Kodak MAX 400. Twenty minute guided exposure aboard my Synta EQ5 GEM. Processing in Photoshop to minimize cloud bands that pestered me all evening. ©2005 Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin BC Canada.

November 08 2004

Submitted by: SherryB at Mon Nov 8 23:51:01 2004 UTC

At least we caught a tiny bit of the great storm here....despite the efforts of the Hawai'ian Express (a local weather system originating in Hawai'i) to ruin it. But mostly we just saw colourful clouds. And diffuse sheet aurora like this one. Oh well.... Camera/lens: Nikon FE/Tamron 28mm.

November 08 2004 Corona

Submitted by: SherryB at Mon Nov 8 23:44:01 2004 UTC

The sky cleared (almost) for about an hour just after 0700Z, and I managed to pull this corona out of the murky heavens. This one was well south of the zenith! Camera/lens: Nikon FE/Tamron 28mm. Film: Kodak MAX 400. © Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin BC Canada. N48.35W123.55

Perseid Meteor in Cygnus

Submitted by: SherryB at Thu Aug 12 23:58:01 2004 UTC

Mostly the camera is never pointed where the action is, it seems, but this Perseid was kind enough to offer its photons for this shot. The photo is centred on Cygnus, with Vega in the upper right. Single unprocessed photo on Kodax MAX 400, Nikon FE camera/Nikkor 50mm lens. Nine-minute guided exposure on a Synta EQ5 GEM. © 2004 Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin BC. N48.35W123.55.

Summer Lights...the beginning

Submitted by: SherryB at Tue Aug 10 18:50:01 2004 UTC

The beginning phase of the great summer aurora storm on the evening of July 26/27.2004, as seen just after sunset from the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island. Beautiful aurora on a hot summer night, with some good friends and first-time aurora watchers...summer nights don't get much better than that. ©2004 Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin BC N48.35W123.55.

~Partial Solar Eclipse~

Submitted by: SherryB at Fri Mar 21 03:14:01 2008 UTC

Another rediscovered goodie! I shot this sequence of the solar eclipse while hosting an eclipse party at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory on a sweltering afternoon on July 11, 1991. This was my first solar eclipse photo attempt. Camera/lens: Nikon FE with Fuji 400 print film, at prime focus on my trusty B&L Criterion 4000 f/12 SCT operating at f/24. Sequence assembled using PhotoShop 6 and Canon PhotoStitch. © 1991-2003 Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin BC. Comments: popokinui@shaw.ca

Orion Leonids

Submitted by: SherryB at Sun Dec 14 17:21:01 2003 UTC

You just never know....I spent a rainy Saturday going thru a box of photos in an effort to reorganize them....and I find this one which I had completely missed. This is a companion photo to my APOD Leonid photo of November 18 2001. Can you see all four Leonids? Camera/lens: Nikon FE/Tamron 28mm f/2.5. Kodax MAX 400 print film. Eight minute guided piggyback exposure on a B&L Criterion 4000 mount. Copyright © 2001-2003 Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin BC N48.4 W123.6 Comments: catlover@ii.ca



Comet Hale-Bopp

Submitted by: SherryB at Sat Mar 22 03:12:01 2008 UTC

Almost didn't get this comet. Cloudy weather and other commitments conspired to keep me away from the camera for much of Hale-Bopp's appearance. Then it all came together and I was able to image the comet from my back yard one beautifully clear April evening. Camera: Nikon FE/Nikkor 50mm lens. Fuji 400 film. 10 minute guided piggyback exposure. Copyright © 1997 Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin BC Canada. Comments: popokinui@shaw.ca
