Where to report a Star flare up?
« on: 2012 January 15 18:27:17 »
Check this image out showing a star flare up in the field of view of my two  ngc7635 images, separated by 101 days, (10/2/11-01/10/12). The changing Low Pixel Rejection maps are from subs that I acquired on 01/10/12. These subs are 120sec with a 5sec separation, I combined the first ten subs and integrated with Region of Interest (Preview Window 01), I then removed the first 4 subs and added the next four subs, keeping the total integration to 10 subs for each of the 11 Integrations.

Martin, thanks, this is another example of my skillful use of Dumb Luck Processing. DLP. 8>)
This star/object is visible  in this image taken in 1997.

I assume this is a Nova, a white dwarf star pulling material from the dim visible  companion star in this location.

Hi Cleon,

I have identified the image area using a DigitizedSkySurvey plate, and later could identify the object with Aladin: seems to be the variable star MO Cassiopeiae, a Mira type (pulsating, long period, high amplitude)

Also, a nice catch ;)

Best regards,

Enzo.

Enzo, thanks for the identification of this object. I did joke with my wife on the remote possibility that this was an incoming fleet of Destructor Ships. 8)

And I though we were about to hear some poetry from “Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz”

Getting back to my Method of discovery (DLP) and (PI, The Good , The Bad and the ugly).
The Pros of PI are all the adjustments the Cons are the same and the ugly is me.
The Method is Image Integration/Pixel Rejection Maps and DLP. I used a sub from 10/2/11 to Register the 1/10/12 subs and one 10/2/11 sub as my reference sub during Image Integration of the 1/10/12 subs. This combination revealed a round star (MO Cas) in the Low Pixel Rejection Map, with a Low Sigma window setting of 2.5%.
