I put off logging this night, and thought I had made notes of the exact day I had gone out, but it seems that I didn't or lost them and I don't remember exactly which day I went out. It was in any case around these days.
It looked like from the weather reports that it was going to be an excellent and transparent night, but the reality was sadly different. I got the Christmas Tree Cluster (NGC 2264) and NGC 2244, the open cluster in the Rosette Nebula. Didn't see any nebulousity.
Other than that, the only thing I got of note was M106 finally. Tried for a while to get the Owl Nebula (M97), but didn't have any luck.comments powered by Disqus
