The Winged Horse

I was already set up as I had done Solar during the day Just needed swap scopes and polar align.

Straight to Saturn no alignment pulled it Central lovely view two moons clearly seen sadly no Cassini division I suspect with the heat seeing wasnt the best.

Slewed to Jupiter dragged that central all four moons two strung out on one side two close on the other side, dark banding evident but not to the extent I have seen.

Next I did the alignment Arcturus which was very close. Next Altair only had to adjust a tiny amount onto Neptune.

Cracking blue marble better in my 15mm BST glorious sight this is only the third time I have viewed it.

Pegasus

Enif   (SAO 1270 29)  Mags 2.5 and 8.7 with a separation of 144.0" Sadly not split I thought I could see a tiny companion but could not swear to it.

1        (SAO 1070 73)     Mags 4.2 and 7.6 with a separation of 35.9"  Orange with a red brown dot at the side

33      (SAO 0904 62)     Mags of 6.3 and 8.5 with a separation of 89.9"   Wide split with yellow and a white companion 

Σ2978   (SAO 0730 10)  Mags of 6.4 and 7.5 with a separation of 8.3"  lovely combination of Yellow and Blue

Σ2841   21h 54 3m  +19° 43`    Mags of 6.5 and 8.0 with a separation of 22.6"   Another Yellow and Blue combination

Σ2848   (SAO 1271 96)  Mags of 7.2 and 7.7 with a separation of 10.9"  Pale Orange twins here

Σ2804   (SAO 0897 92) with mags of 7.7 and 8.0 with a separation of 3.6"  tight double this Orange/Yellow nearly alike stars 

3          (SAO 1269 40)  Mags of 6.2 and 7.7 with a separation of 38.6"  Pale yellow with a off white companion

ΟΣ 469   (SAO 0722 47) Mags of 7.5 and 9.7 with a separation of 27.7  although the secondary is mag 9.7 it is easily seen as a off white next to a sort of pinkish white star

I did try 51 Peg but must of copied the SAO number down wrong and failed to find a triple Σ3021 which was a disappointment.

Finished off with a few different targets and one new to me 

Blinking Nebula NGC 6826  this is unmistakeable its there then its not fascinating

M15 just looked like a fuzzy no matter what mag I put on it.

NGC 7662 with a Oiii filter this is a really lovely object the filter really brings the blue out (Blue Snowball)

NGC 457 One of my favourite objects 

That was it a good night some nice targets hope you like the read.

A great list of targets. The blinking neb is pretty cool for sure. Pegasus needs another month from here, or a very late night.

Nice.

Although I haven't fully plumbed them yet, wookie1965's reports are surely a great SGL resource for viewing lists.

Thankyou Magnus that is very kind of you. Without encouragement and instruction from a good friend I would not be able to do the lists I have had a lot of help. Namely from Nick  (cotterless45)
