  1. The January 2018 edition of the Binocular Sky Newsletter is ready to download. As well as the usual overview of DSOs, variable and double stars, this month we have: * Several lunar occultations, including a graze for southern England * Mira at maximum * Last chance to see Neptune this apparition * Comet Heinze: will it deliver? * A review of the binocular book you should want to read So, if the sky is clear, grab your binocs (or small telescope) and head out to enjoy, and share with others, what nature has to offer us this month. I hope you find it useful. Please note that the charts are necessarily of low resolution, but clicking on them will take you to a higher resolution version. To grab your (free!) copy, or to subscribe (also free) and receive it monthly, please go to http://binocularsky.com and click on the 'Newsletter' tab.
  2. My first target this morning at around 2am was comet C/2017 T1 Heinze. The comet was easily located using sky safari 5 and the Nexus push-to system on my 20" dob. My notes say "With the Ethos10 (x200) in the scope, I nudged over to where it should be. Nudged around a bit more… Here it is! The comet appears as a small bright patch around a bright dot central core. There is a lot of faint dust coming off covering a large area making it a fairly faint object overall to see. The dust circle was up to about half the Ethos FOV @x200. There was a possible tail heading east (but this may have been a background or atmospheric distraction – need to see an image to confirm)."
