Messier 49

Astro log: March 6th, 2010

Equipment: Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, using the 32, 25, 15, 10, and 4 mm eyepieces. New objects observed: M51, M64, M87, M49 Previous objects observed: M81, M82, M53, Saturn, Titan Notes: Pretty good night. Very productive, given the four new galaxies, although the north still showed a lot of washing out from the lights of downtown Tacoma and the Port, which is usually a sign of some transparency issues. I also set up the viewing shelter, though, and wore an eyepatch for a while before hand, so that may have helped.
