Binocular Sky Newsletter, August 2022


Recommended Posts

The latest edition of the Binocular Sky Newsletter is ready. As well as the usual overview of DSOs, variable and double stars, this month we have:

    * A grazing lunar occultation for southern UK
    * Enjoy some asterisms
    * Ice giants 
    * Asteroid Vesta 

I hope this helps you to get the best out of these still short, but lengthening, nights with your binoculars or small telescopes.

To pick up your free copy, just head over to http://binocularsky.com and click on the Newsletter tab, where you can subscribe (also free, of course) to have it emailed each month, and get archived copies.

great list for August, the Sagittarius targets are amazing, still never had the lagoon, hopefully this month. 

A good southern horizon is key. I'm lucky in this regard, living relatively close to the south coast: from Purbeck, the nearest settlement to the south is Cherbourg, about 60 miles away.

Cheers Steve. I have to admit my near dark sky site (which is around an half hours drive) is a little wishy washy in the south, however the next decent location, which has a cracking southern horizon is an hour and a half away, so I will give it a shout at the near place first.

TBF I have managed M33 from it with my bins but then again that wasn't in the south.
