A video observing log! What a good idea! Good job, Karl.

I liked the descriptions with different telescope sizes as well as the observing tips. I'd just suggest that at times the narration was a bit too low-volume against the background music and maybe a bit difficult to understand, at least for a non-native English speaker like me. The female voice, on the other hand, sounded very articulate.

Thanks for the link!

Thanks all

As time goes on, we'll add a galaxy or two per video here and there, and other bonus material.

Karl, I really love these videos, keep em coming.
Have you ever considered lengthening the videos slightly and adding finder charts? or adding a link to finder charts??

Hi Andy

Thanks for your comments, and I'm very glad to hear you're enjoying them

The answer to your question is yes we are going to do more in each video. Adding more galaxies (particularly in spring and autumn), possible sketches, and so on. Also we may do a special GL with many spring galaxies using just the 4" refractor. Kind of a tribute to Walter Scott Houston and his Deep Sky Wonders column whom had a big influence on me, and used a 4" refractor for many of his observations. That will take some time to do though.

I would have to think about using charts, though not sure if we'll be able to use say some of the charts from the modern sky charts published today (we would have to get permission no doubt). Possible using the star finding charts HASB has, though not near as detailed as say Uranometria. Putting say the chart # of say Unranometria is also a possibility.

Basically Galaxy Log will evolve.


Oh, feel free to put any observations of any of the respective month's galaxies in the comment section.


Clear Dark Skies,

Karl; thats awesome....yeah I subscribed to your videos. I only asked about charts ,as Im what Id called an intermediate observer, camelapardis is known to be up there, but finding it, hehehehehehe, ok.
Still working on finding the time and skys to finish the messier club requirments.

FYI

We posted a new video on the Galaxy Log channel called Galaxy Log an Intro. A bit of history and the people involved, including some observing suggestions.

The February GL 2013 should be up this coming weekend.

Well done. I might suggest you speak a little slower. People from the North East and West coast as well as young people in general tend to speak faster. This can be a little off-putting to others and confusing to older people . Take notice of professional communicators, and you'll notice they speak a bit more slowly and enunciate well.
Good job, though.

Hey Andy hope I didn't scare you

Yes David, and we do tend to speak a bit faster.

Thanks

Nah, realizing your observing with a pack of wild dogs 20 feet away, thats scary.
