Messier 56

Astro log: July 10th, 2012

Equipment: 16” Dobsonian telescope, 55mm and 12mm Tele Vue Nagler eyepieces. “New” objects observed: Messier 10, Messier 12 Previously viewed objects observed: Messier 56 “New” is in quotes there because I’m pretty sure I’ve seen M10 and M12, but never bothered to make note of it. In any case, I made sure to look at them tonight, so two more off the Messier list for sure. This was a surprisingly difficult night.

Astro Log: July 16th, 2010

One in a series of entries catching up on a serious backlog of Astro Logs. Equipment: Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ New objects observed: M6, M52 Previous objects observed: M57, M56, M31, M32 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. Weirdly, I notice looking back that I had never put down M56 as something I'd seen, but I'm certain I've looked at it before.
