Google Chromecast
Yes, the Chromecast isn't available from Google in the UK yet, but Santa is a resourceful chap and managed to get me one for Christmas. He probably bought it from Amazon UK , where they are available at an interesting variety of prices! Anyway, I've had it ...

I do like it. Small, simple, and very easy to use. It even wakes up my TV from sleep and/or switches to the right HDMI input when I activate it. No need to find the TV remote first! And volume is controllable from the phone. Almost as if it was built-in to the TV. Exactly what you want, really...

Bright New Supernova Blows Up in Nearby M82, the Cigar Galaxy

Wow! Now here’s a supernova bright enough for even small telescope observers to see. And it’s in a bright galaxy in Ursa Major well placed for viewing during evening hours in the northern hemisphere. Doesn’t get much better than that! The new object was discovered last night when news of the outburst first appeared on the Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams

A Milky Way-bow :-)
 
From the Northern to the Southern Cross
Image Credit & Copyright: Nicholas Buer

There is a road that connects the Northern to the Southern Cross but you have to be at the right place and time to see it. The road, as pictured above, is actually the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy; the right place, in this case, is dark Laguna Cejar in Salar de Atacama of Northern Chile; and the right time was in early October, just after sunset. Many sky wonders were captured then, including the bright Moon, inside the Milky Way arch; Venus, just above the Moon; Saturn and Mercury, just below the Moon; the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds satellite galaxies, on the far left; red airglow near the horizon on the image left; and the lights of small towns at several locations across the horizon. One might guess that composing this 30-image panorama would have been a serene experience, but for that one would have required earplugs to ignore the continued brays of wild donkeys.

I have people 'looking' through my telescope from as far afield as the US and Australia. It is very weird!

Yes, I'm very much enjoying the new scope, and especially what I'm able to do with the webcam, cheap as it is. Live streaming via Google hangouts is great fun!
