Thanks for the kind words, Jeff. I hope you had a good night. 🙂
I had one too, although I had to wait until 11 p.m. to go out. My daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters are here from Florida and I needed to wait until they went to bed to get out there. I still got in 5 hours, knocked off 9 more H400's and recorded Byrgius A at Lunar midday after the Moon came up. Rimae Triesneker is in shadow, so I still have 1 more to go on Lunar II.
The Herschel 400's were NGC's 4478, 4527, 4536, 4636, 4546, 4689, 4548, 4550 & 4570. The best of the bunch was NGC 4527 and 4536. They are both edge on spiral galaxies seen in the same FOV of bright lovely stars. One of the very best of the Herschel 400's and definately worth a look. 8)
22 to go. I hope to be a single digit midget very soon. AGNFA! ;D
