Time To Pull The Plug

This is a subtitle. There are many like it, but this one is here.

Astro Log: August 11th, 2010

One in a series of entries catching up on a serious backlog of Astro Logs.

Equipment: Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, 32mm, 15mm, 9mm, 6mm eyepieces. OIII filter.

New objects observed: M2 (supposedly)

Previous objects observed: M57, M8, M20, M21, M17, M16, M31, M32, NGC 7662, NGC 6543

Notes: Catching up on a massive backlog of Astro Logs I let develop. Unfortunately, all I have are the notes I left on Twitter about what I saw. This night, though, I took better notes. It was also the first time I was able to use my new, non-borrowed OIII filter. Got nebulosity with M8, M20, M17, and M16, although it was very faint with M20 and M16. M2 is marked as a “supposedly” new object because while I thought I’d observed it before, I don’t seem to have it on the list. Weird.
