Does anyone know when Constellation Leo rises?

If this is anything worth looking into, I'm going to check it out at night and try to find Leo. It's nice to view the stars whenever possible anyway.

..It's not Leonis! (RA: 9h 51m 02s, Dec: 13:04:08)
 Quoting: Nexus-9


The coordinates of CW Leonis are this:
09 47 57.406 +13 16 43.56
[link to simbad.u-strasbg.fr]
Looks like a match to me.

It's becoming clear to me though that I am going to need to show CW Leo in the near future. I really don't feel like dragging my ass out of bed in the pre-dawn hours to do it tomorrow though.

At my location, 11:34. It doesn't transit the meridian until 6:12 am though. Ideal time to image CW Leonis is therefore right before astronomical twilight at 0'dark fucking 30.

Would it be too much to ask if the GLP scope can view in infrared?

Leonis shows up nicely but not as bright as the object to the right of it.

 Quoting: Nexus-9


Leonis IS the object on the right. You had the coordinates for CW Leo wrong, it's the one on the right. The star on the left at coordinates 09 51 01.98466, +13 03 58.4598 is 23 Leo. It's just a regular star. In visible light it's about magnitude 6.4, but in infrared it's a bit brighter at magnitude 2.4~3.6 depending on the band.

And just to add, THIS is one more reason why you should learn how to process astrophotos so that you don't have to rely on webware like Microsoft WWT:
[link to www.godlikeproductions.com]
I used PixInsight to process the raw 2MASS data. Of course, that program's not free now, but there are other programs out there and to me it's worth a little cash to be able to handle the data myself.

Oh and before anyone says anything, the blue dot at the center of CW Leonis is there because the central pixels were so over-exposed in the "red" exposure (K band) that they shut off much like how some people end up recording a "black dot" on the sun with their cell phone cameras. The other junk around CW Leonis is lens flaring. The same effects happen with all bright stars in the 2MASS survey.
