Astro Log: October 7th, 2012

Equipment: 16” Dobsonian, 55mm, 12mm TeleVue eyepieces, OIII filter. New objects observed: NGC 1027, IC 1805, NGC 6823, NGC 6834, NGC 6866, NGC 6905 Previously viewed objects: Coathanger (Cr 399), NGC 6910, Messier 57 A somewhat hazy night here, sadly. It ended up being one of those nights where you mostly look at open clusters because that’s mostly what you can see. I did at least observe some more of the Herschel 400 open clusters (and some were even challenging), and for the heck of it looked at M57, because I haven’t for a while.

Equipment: 6” Orion Skyview EQ, 32mm, 15mm, 6mm, 4mm eyepieces, OIII filter. New object observed: NGC 6910 Previously viewed objects observed: Messier 29, Epsilon Lyrae, NGC 7331 New location: Rockaway Beach, OR. Rockaway Beach is fairly dark, but unfortunately it was hazier and damper than I realized, which made it both more difficult to observe than I hoped it would be and brought a fairly early end to the night. I did try searching around for an observing spot that wasn’t so near the ocean that might be above some of this haze, but nothing has panned out yet.
