Messier 20

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. 18th, 2009

Equipment: Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, using the 32, 15, and 10 mm eyepieces and the broadband and ultrablock filters. New objects observed: M28, Lagoon Nebula (M8) & NGC 6530, M20 (kinda), M21, M54. Notes: Another night of below average conditions. The only reason I went out for a little while in the evening was to try out the viewing shelter I'd build since my mom was nice enough to come and help by making the curtains for it (more on that later), and I decided to do some more observing around Sagittarius.
