A quick note from a rewarding evening. The sky was avg in transparency and dark, 21.4 ish and the 200mm VX was used with 3 eyepieces- 30ES 82/21E/Zeiss 25.1-6.7 zoom and a UHC as well. More filterless nebula practise led to the Rosette nebula again and I thought I would share what to look for as it is quite distinct. Just under the cluster of stars (dob view) there is an almost featureless oblongish grey patch, which is notable for the lack of stars in it. When searching I would look for this starless area first and then try to catch the edges. A UHC or OIII can be used to check your findings by placing it over the eyelens. Tonight I found the nebs no problem at all and with the narrow Zeiss zoom and no filter- including a section of Barnards Loop (30 ES 82/21E) It is very helpful to practise this filterless viewing to prepare for the really faint stuff and also to enhance optimal viewing with a filter. Large exit pupils help.
