More swans


Recommended Posts

Finally managed to catch a glimpse of M17 early this morning. I can't believe I've not had a look at this gem before! Really looking forward to another look from a less awkward spot. At such low elevations, it is barely clearing my garden fence, and that's with the dob on a small table. Well worth it though.

Not sure it's really neglected. It's an extremely popular target for deep sky observers, I check it out most times I observe in summer/autumn. From dark sites where the whole swan can be seen, it is a breathtaking sight.

Looking forward to observing this myself this year. A trip to darkest Wales after the long days of June is on the cards :)
