Messier 18

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.
