Extrasolar things to see at 30x?

Recommended Posts

I'm still saving for my 9mm EP and a 2x barlow. For right now I'm stuck with a pair of bins and my new 6" 25mm/750mm scope.

So far I've been able to see the faint core of M31 (pretty light polluted here.. haven't made it out to a dark site yet), and an extremely faint spot that is M57. Both are without any filters. I should have a couple sets of Zhumell narrow and broadband filters coming my way soon.

Anything else for the time being?

Starry objects like Open Clusters and Globular Clusters are much easier to see (particularly if you have light pollution) than nebulae or galaxies. Try these


NGC457 in Casseopeia

M45 Pleiades


M13 in Hercules

M15 in Pegusus
