The Occultation of Antares, 2006/6/6

I observed the occultation of Antares from the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg's Naylor Observatory on Saturday night using a 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain at 162x and its 5" f/5 finder scope. I took a number of photos of Antares and the Moon after Antares reappeared. Even though the conditions weren't ideal, I was also able to catch a glimpse or two of Antares B.

Here's a prime focus image taken through the 17" with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel DSLR camera.

Chance favors the prepared mind.
