About this image

  VV Cephei in the Midnight Sky preparing for an upcoming eclipse, which is the subject of an exciting spectroscopy campaign from 2017 to 2019.

 New on the photograph: I created also a logo or emblem for the campaign.

 Polaris is to the upper right of the logo,

 Cassiopeia at the bottom of the photograph and VV Cephei is clearly visible, ready to take a spectrum. ;-)

Enjoy !

 Marc.
