11 May 2021: The morning sky was clearer than the night before so I tried to capture again the whole Cassiopeia region with the Nova Cas 2021 one more time. The inset of annotated version shows nova just in the center. Used Canon 6D modified, Sigma 50mm, f3.2, ISO 2000, 60x40s from the tripod and Vixen U mount.
10 May 2021: Recently, the night sky offers a pretty unique phenomenon – in the Cassiopeia constellation, a bright nova can be visible on the threshold of naked-eyes visibility away from the cities. Nova brightened first time during March, reaching about 7th magnitude. Now, it gets even to the 5th magnitude. The Nova Cassiopeia 2021, also as V1405 Cas, had been discovered by Czech astronomer Zbyněk Henzl even before its flare. I was lucky to spot the nova just before the daybreak on May 10th, 2021, while cirrus clouds were passing in the view. Still, good enough to capture the constellation with its “new star”, marked by the lines in the image. The inset shows nova just in the center. Used Canon 6D modified, Sigma 50mm, f3.2, ISO 2000, 20x40s from tripod and Vixen U mount.
