Equipment: 16” Dobsonian, 55mm, new 9mm & 6mm Edge-On Planetary eyepieces, Paracorr New objects observed: Iapetus Previously viewed objects: Saturn, Titan, Tethys, Dione, Rhea It’s been a pretty brutal time for trying to get viewing time in for a while now. It was finally “clear” last week, so I took the Dobsonian out to try out the Edge-On Planetary 6 and 9mm eyepieces from Orion that I got a while back.
Equipment: Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, using the 32, 25, 15, and 4 mm eyepieces. New object observed: M94, M44, M67, M41, Saturn, Titan, Tethys, Phoebe Rhea Previous objects observed: M81, M82, Mars Possibly glimpsed (but likely not): M51, M65 Notes: It's been a brutal couple of months. The night of the 18th was the first clear night in about a month or so, and the first good night since December.
