September - what I have observed with comments and rating out of 5 stars by constellation for this month

Hercules

M13  ***** Quite open globular cluster, can make out individual stars around the edge and center, looks to be thousands of stars and seems very dense almost nebulous at the center. Best in 15mm EP and 2x Barlow

M92 **** Dense globular cluster, can distinguish individual stars around the edge, nice in the  8mm EP and barlow

Lyra

Epsilon Lyrae **** - double double Nice to view and easy to distinguish the binary stars

M57 ***** Ring Nebula. Easy to locate and you can see the ring clearly and also see the red and green. Very nice object to observe, cannot see center star

Cygnus

Alberto *** Double star. You can clearly see they comprise of a bright yellow and a dimmer (but bright) blue companion

Vulpecula

M27 ** Dumbell Nebula - very faint and hard to distinguish but you can just make out the dumbell  shape and cannot see any colour but looks brownish

Ursa Major

M81 & M82 *** Can view both galaxies as fuzzy hazes with brighter centers at the same time using the 15mm EP.  M81 (below M82) looks bigger and looks to be edge on.
