Observing Log Oct. 13 0

Posted on October 14, 2016 by Erin Aadland

Tyler, Stefan, and Erin went out to the observatory with the intention of observing WASP-75 b.  The temperature was around 40 F, the focus was set to 2842, and the FWHM was between 4 and 7.  When we turned on the continuous shooting and the subframe  in order to focus the telescope, MaxIm DL decided it didn’t want to stop taking images. We had to focus the camera multiple times before it worked.  Then we tried observing WASP-75 b before realizing that the object was too close to the moon.  We also tried to get images of M31 but couldn’t get the exposure time right.
