Time To Pull The Plug

Astro Log: August 17th, 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: M71 (supposedly), M27 (supposedly), NGC 7027

Previous objects observed: NGC 6543 (if I remember right, anyway), M2, M31, M32

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 somewhat better notes. It was supposed to be super duper ultra clear, but I think there was smog hanging around making things more difficult. Also, I put down that I had seen NGC 6394, but I must have somehow managed to mistype NGC 6543 on my iPhone or something, because there’s no way I could have seen a 16th magnitude galaxy from my backyard in Tacoma. I also have M71 and M27 as “supposedly ” new objects because they don’t seem to be on the list, but I’m pretty sure I’ve observed both of them before.

And with that, I’m caught up.
