Astro Log: August 17th, 2012

Equipment: 16” Dobsonian, 55m, 12mm Tele Vue eyepieces. Also looked at M13 & the Veil Nebula through someone else’s telescope. New objects observed: NGC 7335, Stephan’s Quintet (NGC 7317, NGC 7318 (a & b), NGC 7319, NGC 7320), Mayall II, Maffei 1 Previously viewed objects: NGC 7331, Messier 31, Messier 32, Messier 110, NGC 3077, Messier 81, Messier 82, Messier 13, NGC 6960, Messier 45, Messier 33 Location: Sunrise Point, Mt.

Astro Log: August 15th, 2012

Equipment: 16” Dobsonian, 55mm, 12mm Tele Vue eyepieces. New objects observed: Basel 1, NGC 6704, NGC 6712, IC 4665, Collinder 350 Previously viewed objects observed: Messier 11 (Wild Duck Cluster), NGC 7331, Messier 31, Messier 32 The main task this night was looking around for that interesting asterism I remembered seeing a long time ago. I think it’s in the neighborhood of the Wild Duck Cluster, and if so I think I have indeed found it again.

Astro Log: August 10th, 2012

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.

Astro Log: August 13th, 2010

One in a series of entries catching up on a serious backlog of Astro Logs. Equipment: Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, OIII filter. New objects observed: NGC 5866 (aka M102), NGC 7331, M73 Previous objects observed: NGC 7009, 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. This night, though, I took better notes.
