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.
New objects that I saw two nights ago with my 6" reflector… NGC 6960, Veil Nebula M101, Pinwheel Galaxy M11, Wild Duck Cluster
Last night I ventured out to a secret site for viewing the night sky. Okay, I don’t know if it’s an actual secret, but it’s certainly out of the way.
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.
