Kemble's Cascade

#1

Post by mariosi »

Kemble's Cascade,
(Kemble 1), located in the constellation Camelopardalis, is an asterism — a pattern created by unrelated stars. It is an apparent straight line of more than 20 colourful 5th to 10th magnitude stars over a distance of approximately five moon diameters, and the open cluster NGC 1502 can be found at one end.

It was named by Walter Scott Houston in honour of Father Lucian Kemble (1922–1999)
Father Lucian Kemble was also associated with two other asterisms, Kemble 2 (an asterism in the constellation of Draco that resembles a small version of Cassiopeia) and Kemble's Kite (an asterism that resembles a kite with a tail which is also in the constellation of Camelopardalis). In addition, an asteroid, 78431 Kemble, was named in his honour.(Wikipedia)

Very nice! I was going to have a look at it last night, but ran out of time. Maybe tonight if the weather holds.

Nice image Marios. A good object for medium to large size binos I might add.

Kemble 1 is indeed a beautiful asterism Marios. I liken it to a waterfall of stars that seem to pool into NGC 1502 at its base. It is bright and distinctive in small apertures and binoculars. Nice sketch, and you captured its essence quite nicely. :)
