However, there was was still a high haze, and with the Moon and my light polluted skies in the midst of a lit up gated community, I would never classify this as a "dark night". I bought an ADM 'D' (wide) style clamping jaw and put on mine, and I mounted a short 'D' mounting plate to the bottom of my Questar. I'm sure that my Q can catch all these objects, but not on this night. I also plan on some image captures from time to time. It was a very good night for FL with a 7/10 Transparency and 8/10 seeing. I then went on to Cancer since Gemini was getting low in the west. Thanks Ben. More information for students/prospective students and employees/applicants. I used the 16mm with Barlow. Well, as long as it tracks well. A pair of well focused textbook images of two bright doubles. There was limited time in between cloud bands, but I was able to view M13, M92, and M5 on my first attempt with it; I was absolutely delighted with the results it provided, especially in my suburban Bortle-7 skies. It's a gear noise from the 35 year old motor. Hey, maybe I can see the greenish secondary, I thought. new google.translate.TranslateElement({pageLanguage: 'en', layout: google.translate.TranslateElement.InlineLayout.HORIZONTAL}, 'google_translate_element'); Maybe my friend will be there to keep me company. It's a gear noise from the 35 year old motor. Later I looked at the WDS and it lists the B star at 10.0. Edited by davidmcgo, 13 June 2020 - 01:42 PM. Thanks Terry!

Should be fun as I can do some deep space imaging with the Brandon 94, as well as compare the two scopes on planetary imaging. Just orient the scope over a leg when you polar align and there is no tendency to tip. Tonight started out a cool (for Florida) 70 deg and low humidity. I will not give up and try again another night and earlier when they are near the zenith. +1 for R Leporis. The extending center column is really useful to nail comfort when using a fixed height chair. This is why star hopping and setting circles have proven so frustrating in the past. My old black Hamamatsu blanket does a fine job, but makes me look really strange to people walking by. It is the goal of Questar III BOCES that this website is accessible to all users. It was a first and great view of the nebula with the Questar. M80- This is what you may call a fuzzy ball of light with a very bright center. It's interesting that I wrote down that the B star seemed to be bluish or redish. Rock solid though for imaging. M67: Best seen at higher power. I saw two lightly touching Airy discs surrounded by a common diffraction ring. After a careful alignment process and a quick view of Venus and Castor to check the gotos, I began with a few doubles in Gemini before the constellation sank too low in the west. Thanks, I will keep my eye out for one of those! The secondary appearing just barely outside the diffraction right of the primary. I did have some distortion with Saturn because of the window glass.
