  3. Hello to All.

    Hello Chris and welcome from me, located on the rainy west coast of Norway . Rune
  4. My First Session- Aug 2017

    Your article was a very good read (so are Your posts here at SGL). I really like the poetic/romantic approach to stargazing reports. Minor issue : I wouldnt Call the Pleiades a Constellation, since it already is part of the Constellation Taurus. Regards Rune Edit : Hope you find yourself a Nice telescope soon
  5. Italy - night four

    Reports like this really makes me look forward to the dark Autumn Nights Piero . Most of the Objects you observed on Your night 4 is probably the ones I`ve spend most time observing, It is a part of the sky With lots of interesting, and quite easy to find, targets. As for Neptune and Uranus, I Guess I`m one of the few who yet havent detected any color on these planets. Rune
  6. Need some inspiration....

    Bit too late for M5 now, but I really think you would like that. A very fine globular.
  7. Hi everyone!

    Hello Giskard and welcome to SGL . I`m a strictly visual observer, but I must say the image you just posted in the image-section (orion nebula) was amazing. Rune
  8. A celestial skull

    Good report Stephan. Very interesting to see that youre pleased With the ES 26mm. Been considering a 24mm 68 for the Heritage, but the 26mm is slightly lighter (and cheaper) and give sameish fov. Auriga and Taurus Objects are a bit too early from up here. Not that it matters considering the cloudbelt.. Rune
  9. Hello Statgazers

    Hello and welcome to SGL . Rune
  10. Italy - night two

    Nice part two indeed . Apart from the most famous ones I`ve never really gotten into splitting doubles With my 8" dob. I really should, like John said in a previous post; - when little else visible you always got binaries. Rune

    Hello and welcome from me, located in Norway . Rune
  12. Italy - night one

    Brilliant report. Your Saturn views really sounds amazing. How high was Saturn above Your horizon when observing, 23-24° ? Rune

    I always observe Capella without instrumental accompaniment
