  1. 7th November 2015 Equipment: Olympus 10x50mm DPS-I on tripod (6 degree FOV) Time: 02:40-04:00 Orion's Sword: Orion Nebula was glowing quite brightly. There was hints of nebulosity around the Running Man and the stars very crisp points of light. Rosette central cluster was obvious, I thought I saw a very faint haze around it, but it was so dim that it was most likely wishful thinking. Pleiades very crisp and looked great. Through the crispness there was a very slight shimmer/twinkle to the stars. It was a great view, something that definitely needs the stability of a tripod to see. Jewel Box cluster was quite small but about 6 individual stars and a V shape was clearly visible. Alpha Cruxis was visible as double star. The bright primary was not resolvable as two. Cluster at the other side of Crux from the Jewel Box, easterly from the Carina Nebula there was a dense star field, definitely worth putting a camera on it to see if there is any nebulosity there. There was a distinct orange star among the star field, much brighter and orange than any of the other stars around. Initially I thought it looked out of place and reminded me of the supernova spotted in Sagittarius through the binoculars on 20 March 2015 @ 3:42am AEDT (16:42UT). The dense star field was approximately 1 degree in size so will most likely need to be imaged at 500mm f6.25 to get whole object into frame. Carina Nebula was nicely visible, the dark V shape dust lane... or A as it was orientated tonight, was clearly visible among shimmering stars and nebulous haze. As a note there was a star cluster in or near Canis Major to look into. The Olympus DPS-I 10x50mm binoculars are great, clear and sharp for astronomical observing, there is slight distortion to the extreme edges of the FOV but nothing that bothered me at all. It was a great night of binocular observing. MG
