Astro Log: April 15th, 2010

Equipment: Celestron AstroMaster 76 EQ, Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, 32mm, 15mm, 10mm, 9mm eyepieces. New objects observed: Mercury, M60, M86, M84, M58, M104, M5 Previous objects observed: M87 Notes: An excellent night with good transparency and seeing, which has been quite the rarity around these parts for the last six months or so. To start off the night, at late evening I walked down to the corner with the Astromaster (easier to carry) to try and get Mercury.
