The Hyades is a V-shaped open cluster in the constellation of Taurus.
Unfortunately, the weather seems to favour half moons. There have not been many clear nights, and when I was finally able to get out to do some photography, the moon was in the same phase as last time. I missed a crescent moon in between because it was on a work day and I had to get to bed early.
I tried to improve the quality of the shot, but this seems to be the best I can get out with 45 mm lens. Even with 2x cropping factor, it does not have a sufficient magnification. Focusing on the tiny but bright moon is difficult.
Technical difficulties (severe server connection issues) delayed the third leg of the journey to Colonia, and I arrived at Eagle’s Landing in Eagle Sector IR-W d1-117 system one week behind schedule. There were more brown dwarfs on the plotted route, and I had to perform several corrections to find fuel stars.
Already late, I abstained from taking a closer look at the systems and only snatched a couple of detailed scans on the fly. Since fast travel is more important for the journey than exploration, I am thinking of getting rid of the so far unused vehicle hangar at the next station with outfitting services to increase the jump range a bit.
