Messier 17

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.

Astro log: Sept. 20th, 2009

Equipment: Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, using the 32, 25, 15, 9, 6, and 4 mm eyepieces and the broadband,  ultrablock, and OIII filters. New objects observed: M17 (Omega Nebula), M16 (Eagle Nebula), M18, M11 (Wild Duck Cluster), M26 Previously observed objects: M31, M32 Notes: Not a long night. Conditions were actually better than they've been the last few nights I've been able to observe, but I was too tired to stay out very long; also, Monday night (and quite likely Tuesday night) are supposed to be even better.
