Home Forums RAC Main Forum General Discussion Observing tonight? Re: Observing tonight?


    I agree, Dean, this weather has been very kind to us of late.  I don't know whether it is just a renewed spark in astronomy for me or what, but I have more scope time since August 25th as I had the whole first 8.66 months of the year.  I've captured 7 Herschel 400 objects in the 5 nights I've been out, including two this morning: NGC1502 and 1501 in the Camel…  Binoculars saved my morning because I was on the wrong string of stars that I thought were Kemble's Cascade.  Once I got on the right path, these two objects were easy to find.
