April : The big event for this month is the occultation of Saturn on the 25th April only visible to those on the eastern side of Australia, however it will occur after moonrise and the moon will be low on the horizon. Don’t worry if you can’t grab this tricky shot this month – it will be happening again in August and September more favourably. The Milky Way season for astrophotographers is in full swing with the core rising in the east for great landscape / widefield shots. This brings with it a huge range of deep space targets. Carina is well placed for imaging throughout most of the night. The “Seagull”, “Running Chicken” and the “Statue of Liberty” nebulae are all bright easy targets early to mid evening. Galaxy enthusiasts might like to try M83 – the classic “Southern Pinwheel”.
