I am out at an observing location about 100 miles from Phoenix, Arizona near the little town of Quartzsite. We were clouded out last night, but I got some good observations on Monday evening. I rated the seeing as 7/10 and the transparency at 8/10, about as good as this site gets.
Using my 16" f/4.5 with a 27mm Panoptic eyepiece I observed the cluster around Tau CMa, NGC 2362.
NGC 2362 32 stars resolved, bright, pretty large, much compressed and pretty rich. The two companions of Tau CMa are easy, averted vision adds another 10 stars to this unique cluster.
Raising the power with the 14mm eyepiece resolved 51 stars and provides a great view. Tau is blue-white and companions are much easier at this higher power.
