outstanding video, is this the first M object you've covered? possibly bright galaxy's for a small scope this time of year harder to find, other than messier's?.
Thanks again for he videos, with the weather recently nothing much to do , but look for interesting astronomy things to do , in the house, lol.

Thanks Andy.

No, we did M-106 in May's 2013 GL.

There are still a number of non-Messier galaxies this time of year for the smaller scopes. Our problem for that will probably come in the summer month's down the road.

Anyway, I was very pleased with the views I had of M-33 that night with the 4" refractor, which was the night I chased away a bear and a small Screech Owl scared the pants off me. Wrote about it here...owl not included(a bit embarrassing).

Thanks

Here's what I wrote about that night on the CAS site about the owl:

About an hour later after the bear incident, as I went to the passenger side of the van for coffee. Here a Screech Owl was sitting on my van rack unbeknownst to me, and when I approached the van he took off making a sound, and scared the *BLEEP* out of me. So a black bear didn't scare me much, but a 7 to 8 inch tall raptor of the night scared the pants off me.

Gotta love the night.



So there you have it.

Thanks Andy

Sorry about the late reply.

I'm certainly not the best sketcher, but I must say that it was -1 degree at the time, and had at least a lighter glove on my left hand to sketch. So I was pleased with the result.

I did say to my observing comrade (the 25” dob owner) that I wish I had observed and sketched through the 8” refractor, but with the elements (cold and still icy patches at the site) the smaller more compact 6” refractor was used instead.

I observed it again this past week (again real cold at 5 degrees), but with my 22” f/4.5 dob. I borrowed a 4.7mm Ethos (amazing eyepiece) that gave me a magnification of 533x. Though the SN has dimmed a bit, the view quite astonishing.

Good video ,again, and interesting opening. As just this morning I was scrounging around for pics and charts for Markarians chain, and finally down loaded both. Then came here and saw the galaxy log alert. Ive never actually seen Markarians chain , nor have I attempted to find and or verify all the messiers in the Virgo cluster.
