Astro log: November 3rd, 2010

Catching up on Astro Logs again...

Equipment: Celestron AstroMaster 76 EQ, Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ, 32mm, 15mm, 9mm, 6mm, 4mm eyepieces.

New objects observed: Messier 34

Previous objects observed: Jupiter, Messier 31, Messier 32, Messier 77

Notes: Went out to see if it's easier to look at Jupiter with my f/9 3" telescope or not. It was, but not so much that I'll likely do so a lot. Jupiter was less washed out looking though.

Later in the night I went back out, experimented with looking at M31 and M32 with a cloth over my head to block light (bit of a wash and really annoying), successfully observed M77 at home, and added M34 to my list of Messier objects I've observed. Time to update the list again. Also, now that I've gotten caught back up with my astro logs, I need to stay up on it.
