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.
Equipment: Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, using the 32, 25, 10, 6, and 4 mm eyepieces, and the 2x Barlow with the 6mm. New objects observed: M3, M53 Previous objects observed: M81, M82, Mars, Saturn, M94 Notes: Probably the last good night for a while. Weather's supposed to turn cloudy again, and the moon's rising later and waxing anyway. M81 & M82 weren't particularly bright, but they were visible. Found M94 again without too much trouble, but while I spent a good fair while trying to chase down other galaxies, I didn't have any luck.
