Messier 44

Object Name: M44 (Praesepe/El Pesebre)

Object Type: Open Cluster

Location: Leioa (Bizkaia) – Spain

Date: 2015-04-01 / 23h 35m U.T.

Media: White paper, HB graphite pencil, scanned and inverted/processed with Photoshop

Telescope: Meade ETX 70AT

Eyepiece: Hyperion zoom 8-24mm a 8mm (44X)

Transparency: City Skies.

Location Constellation: Cancer

Assessments:I use the zoom eyepiece at 8mm position (44X), center brighter area of cluster and start to draw what I see, initially see little stars, and as I start acclimating sight see more stars and more clearly, some brightest stars and other stars least, I drawing that I saw, the Moon is almost full and does not help in the observation and I greatly clear sky.

Comentarios: Utilizo el ocular zoom en la posición de 8mm (44X), centro la parte mas brillante y comienzo a dibujar lo que veo, al principio veo pocas estrellas, pero a medida que voy aclimatando la vista comienzo a ver mas estrellas y mas claramente, unas mas brillantes y otras menos, dibujo las que voy viendo, el que la Luna este casi llena no ayuda en la observación ya que me aclara mucho el cielo.
