  2. Messier-Caldwell (MesCal) Marathon Observing List Stephen Saber Adding the available Caldwell showpieces- many within a stone's throw of the Messiers- is a rewarding way to keep the marathon dso hunt momentum going while waiting for the sky to turn. Here's a template for 40 deg N, but can easily vary as to when one wishes to jump on and off the Messier track, and for latitude dependent target additions/omissions. This route adds 62 Caldwells to the 110 Messiers. Some March Caldwells not reaching at least 10 deg altitude are not included. M74, M77, M33, C28, C23 M31, M32, M110, C18, C17 M52, C11, C13 M103, C8, C10, C5, C14 M76, M34, C24, M45 M79, M42, M43, M78, M50, M41 C64, M93, C58, M46, M47, C54 M48, C50, C49, C46 C41, C39, M35, M1, M37, M36, M38 C31, C25, M44, M67, C48 M95, M96, M105, M65, M66 C40, C53, C59 M81, M82, C7, C3 M97, M108, M109, M40, M106 C21, C26, C32, C29 M94, M63, M51, M101, M102 M98, M99, M100, M85, M84, M86 M87, M88, M91, M90, M89 M58, M59, M60, M49, M61 C38, C36, C35, M64, M53, M3 C45, C52, M104, C60, C61 M68, M83, C66 M5, M13, M92, C6, C1 M57, M56, C15, M39, C20, M29 C27, C33, C34, C37, M27, M71 M12, M10, M14, M107, M9, M4 M80, M62, M19 M11, M26, M16, M17, M18, M24 M25, M23, M21, M20, M8, M28 M22 C75, C76, C69, M6, M7 M69, M70, M54, M55, M75 C57, C47, C42, M15, M2 M72, M73, C55 *C30, C19, C16, C22 C12, C4, C9, C2, M30 *this pre-m30 target sequence is ordered to allow cepheus maximum altitude while moving away from the approaching morning twilight dome. As with the M-Cubed, hardcore MesCal Marathon hunters wanting to preserve maximum nightvision and spend more time observing should practice memorizing and sharpshooting this list in smaller groups throughout the year. Matt Wedel's appreciated southern sky follow-up: Concordiem Australis *****
  3. Concordiem Borealis by Stephen Saber This collection of DSOs and doublestars unifies the Astronomical League's Messier, Binocular Deepsky, Caldwell (the 76 most northern), and Double Star targets as well as the RASC’s 110 Finest NGC Objects (90 of which are Herschel 400s). Three doubles I couldn’t live without are also included. Designed with those tackling the Observe Programs in mind, the overlapping entries have been omitted- leaving a treasure chest of 400+ gems for northern observers. Grouped by constellation, the basic data and corresponding Pocket Sky Atlas chart follow each entry.

  5. Jupiter and Saturn's 2020 grand tease (conjunction) gave us a bright, beautiful doublestar naked-eye, and it was nice viewing them in the same scope field. But I wanted more. Blowing the dust off a 20-year-old Celestia planetarium software CD, I tweaked the event parallax into a full occultation. This triggered a bucket list of location/time based planetary, sun, and moon event simulations that might be observed with future space flight capabilities. There's some other astro-related clips made just for kicks as well. If anything, it's been cheap therapy to help get me through countless cloudy nights. Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/@saberzastrovidz Peace, Stephen PAC/Astronomical League http://www.tinyurl.com/saberdoesthestarz http://www.tinyurl.com/c14isawesome
  6. video at https://www.youtube.com/@saberzastrovidz jupiter occasionally tolerates a paparazzi fieldstar posing as a galilean to snap some pics (after all, many have light that has traveled hundreds of years for the encounter). but mars is welcomed as family, with ganymede even timing a special shadow transit for the red planet's visit. *created with celestia* also see http://www.tinyurl.com/c14isawesome http://www.tinyurl.c...berdoesthestarz related searches: astronomical league, hubble's caldwell catalogue, messier-caldwell marathon, m-cubed, messier marathon from memory, deepsky lists/concordiem borealis, c14 is awesome, saber does the stars, saber's beads, saberscorpx, stephen saber, starhoppers guide to the herschel 400

  9. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sir Patrick's DSO catalogue, I've added the available Caldwells to my basic Marathon search sequence. Those interested may be pleasantly surprised by how many of the additional treasures are only a short hop from a given (or en route to the next) Messier. The sequence for 40°N can be found at the SEDS Messier Marathon homepage or at my blog. Peace, Stephen
