Astropical

This site is for Astronomy Studies in the Tropics. I'm based in East Pattaya, Thailand, 12.934N, 100.918E, between the sun's northern limit and the Equator. The big advantage of this location is that you can observe both northern and some southern stars at the same time. And it's never cold... lol. I hope to introduce you to the unique celestial opportunities available from this area. Enjoy your observations!! Taro Seki Astropical.uk

The Whirlpool Galaxy  (子持ち銀河) Messier 51,NGC5194,5195I took this photo about two weeks ago, but I couldn't get the "corner" sticking out to the northwest and the faint dust on the east side.I divided it into two parts, yesterday, when the seeing was ...
