Ngc 488

Astro Log: October 6th, 2012

Equipment: 16” Dobsonian, 55mm eyepiece New objects observed: NGC 7606, NGC 404, NGC 488, NGC 1023, NGC 891, NGC 7479, Palomar 13 Previously viewed objects: Messier 31, Messier 32, Messier 33, Messier 110 Location: Sunrise, up at Mt. Rainier. This was not the best night to have gone up to Sunrise, but it’s unclear if I’ll be able to make another trip up this year, so I went last night. To get a feel for how the night was going to go I found M33 and was not encouraged; it was rather faint, despite being at 45ยบ altitude.
