    The big and the small of comet 46P

    Nice comparison, I have only seeing it with the 20X60 bins. The last few day it is unfortunately very cloudy. Would like to see it with the 10"dob. Great sketches.

    Observing Report 12/12/18

    Great report, and beautiful varied objects. The Cat's eye nebula is still on my to do list, Always having a hard time finding it. Really curious about this nebula.

    Hi from Netherlands..

    Hello Nojus and welcome, I'm lucky to have some pretty dark skies (for Dutch standards) on the Veluwe.

    Observing Comet 46P

    Got it with the 20 X 60 bins, glad to catch it during a clear sky break between cloudcovers before the moon is going to be present again. It was a easy visable grey blob with a ligther core, no naked eye object from my garden. Skysafari 5 Pro was spot on, a easy starhop SE from Menkar in Cetus.

    46P Wirtanen and a treat

    Great report, came from a quick view at 46P / Wirtanen. Need a bino for the comet from my garden. Nice lighter core is a grey fuzzy blob.
  7. Great paul, I really wish the clouds here getting blown away so I can take a look myself.

    Winter Circle

    Great picture, the beehive cluster, Christmas tree cluster, M35, M37 and starfish cluster also visible. I think there is plenty more in it.

    Friday astronomy!

    It sure is Emustardust, and looking at the complete constellations with the naked eye is great too.
  10. Great report Alan, wow spiral arms. M33 I find very hard to see at all,

    Short 20 X 60 session

    It's also the only way to see M33 from my garden, spend way to much time on it trying to find it with a telescope. Probably looking right through it. I really enjoy those wide views, but I should probably buy a 15 X 70 someday.
