Astro Log: July 26th, 2014

Equipment: 16” Dobsonian, 55mm, 12mm TeleVue eyepiece, Paracorr.

New objects observed: Sadly, none.

Previously viewed objects: Messier 13, NGC 6229, NGC 6207, NGC 5866 (aka “Messier 102(?)”)

This has been a terrible year for observing. Last night was the second night that I’ve been able to get out and observe anything. It was only a so-so night on top of it, and I started getting kind of sore while I was out there. Tonight (as I write this) is supposed to be better, so I left the telescope and viewing shelter out in hopes that I can go out again and see more stuff.

NGC 6207 was exceedingly difficult, but it was high enough in the sky that I was just barely able to pull off seeing it with averted vision. Messier 13 was lovely as always.

Life and events conspired against me going to Goldendale for the TAS star party this year, but hopefully I’ll be able to travel to a dark site sometime this year.
