Photorealistic Image in Stellarium

Object: Stars

Site: Front Yard

Seeing: Good

Transparency: 3

Constellation: Leo

Magnification: 10x

FOV: 4.8 degrees

Observing Time: 11:40 pm – 11:50 pm

Notes: Distinctive pattern observed in the neck of Leo the Lion.  There were actually two pairs of double stars seen in the binocular FOV when aiming at this area.  Fascinating and I wonder if these two are the only pairs that can be seen simultaneously with such distinction under a 4.8 degree FOV. All stars were bluish-whitish, an interesting find overall.

Cursor for the screenshot tool that I use for grabbing images from Stellarium. I didn’t notice it, thanks for pointing that out =D Usually it’s hidden, but somehow this time it snook out into the screenshot as well. XD

[in nerdy voice] Although, that seems to be an opening into the 11th dimension, the solution, allowing us humble human beings the ability to travel through time, manipulate the universe’s energy to our whim, and be true masters of the universe. Never before seen to man, it seems to be within reaching distance of our fastest ion propulsion rockets, and within one generation we should arrive to reap its unimaginable power 😉 Ah, the potential….the potential… [sigh, if only this was true lol]
