Summer Viewing

Doug Smith
Yesterday I had a pretty good night of viewing with my 6" newtonian telescope. I managed to see many galaxies including M51 (the Whirlpool Galaxy), M101, M106, M31 (the Andromeda Galaxy) and a cool look at the pair of M81 and M82.

First Night Observing

Last night was the first time in ages which I’ve had my telescope out and looking at the night sky. The conditions were pretty good for Vancouver and I had my dob set up on the back deck.
