  1. I got my telescope set up as soon as it got dark to do some imaging of the galaxy NGC 925, which was just visible in my 200p as a faint glow with a slight grainyness to it. While my camera was clicking away, I started hunting around with my binoculars. Just above the naked-eye star beta-Tri (or tracing a path in the opposite direction from the line through beta-Tri to the galaxy) there was a very pleasing looking open cluster. It appeared in my 10 x 50s as a two faint glowing patches with a misting of faint point like stars sprinkled over the dim milky light. It was safely within the FoV and it provided a very pleasant and rewarding view. I later checked with Stellarium and found that it was C28 (NGC 752). A wonderful surprise and a very nice object to just stumble upon. I had a quick view of the cluster through my 200p with my 20mm EP. The FOV was just filled with stars and I'll try again with less magnification once I get the chance. I eventually packed in once I got very cold and ice started forming on the tube of the scope.
  2. Much to my surprise the sky cleared here in South Oxfordshire last night and, as it was too late in the evening to get my scope set up, can't stay up on a "school night", I went out with my bins to do a bit of scouting around. The sky was reasonably transparent and I had no difficulty seeing the core and extent of M31 and its companions M32 and M110. M33 was also very obvious as was M1. I had a look for the galaxy NGC 891 (C23), near to Triangulum, not with the expectation of actually seeing it with my binoculars but to familiarise myself with its location for a future session with the telescope. While I was in the vicinity I stumbled across a very pleasing open cluster on an approximate line from gamma Triangulum through beta Triangulum. Checking on Stellarium later, I found that the cluster is NGC 752 (C28). It's certainly worth a visit as it nicely fills the field of view and has a rather pleasing lambda shape.
