Congratulations Tyler -
that Zambuto 12.5" f5 Newt. is a great instrument
& you've extracted that potential out of it.
Well done.

I would like to try NGC6914 in Cygnus for the July target. It is a colorful and beautiful target that offers something for both small and large instruments. Have fun everyone!

Hi Tyler -
why not chose M16 the Eagle - a target that we can all see
in both the Northern & Southern hemisphere?
NGC 6914 only rises to a maximum of 9 degrees above the horizon
in Melbourne Australia.

We hope we can try to balance members from northern and southern hemisphere later if possible, but we all know it's not easy.

If I get to chose any future targets, I will be more aware. Please accept my apologies for my lack of awareness.
