They're all visible from the UK, at least from the south coast ...

I'm not visiting the South coast as far as I know but obviously some are not visible from Nottinghamshire?

Hello Ron,

It is worth taking some binoculars on holiday if you are heading south. Quite a lot of the more southern ones are quite bright (except M83 & 79 which can be right xxxxs). I bagged my final M with a pair of 10x50 bins.

You’ll get hooked on getting the last couple and be driving south before you know it! ?

The Messier list is a great place to start. It’s got a bit of exerything.

Thanks Paul, I'm off to Southern France in the Summer so the bins will be going too! (I'm also a birdwatcher!)

Cheers

Ron
