Excellent video as usual. your daughters sketch purty dern god for her first time.

I noted in the photo of the Hickson grouping, far left three stars in a line , red, blue and white, its very striking and drew my eye immediately.

Hi Andy

Thanks, and also Jill will be doing more.

I looked into those 3 "stars", and it looks like they are 3 PGC galaxies per WIKISKY.ORG

I'm guessing the brightest of these far away galaxies is around 19th mag plus, which is beyond my 22" dob, though something like Jim Lowrey's 48" dob in west Texas would no doubt reel them in.

Thanks Andy.

Yes, Jillian even as a child was always fascinated by nature and Space in general.

I remember her one science project (I think it was 5th grade), Jill's theme was Light Pollution. Yep, she got an A for it.

She's a chip off the old block in love for deep space.

Below is Jillian working out some "bugs" in her mount.

Thanks all and you're welcome.

We may do a mid-month special with the current supernova in a couple galaxies.

Hmm...video of the session? Possible, though could be an issue with dark adaption.

No to Black Forest, but probably heading to West Virginia though. It's darker

Now you can double your September galaxies with last years September Galaxy Log (09.2012). Unlike milk, galaxies have a long long expiration date

Good video as usual. Got get me some charts for the brighter galaxy's as I'm heading out for two nights with my 120mm f/5 this weekend.

Thanks and I hope you get some nice clear skies.

Play with various magnifications to get the most out of the object(s). Particularly ones with higher surface brightness.

Im a little bummed, had hoped to make the BFSP this year or any star party, alas Ill settle for astro camping at a good dark sky site.

Dumb question if I might, when you used the 20mm eye piece with the 4 inch f/10 on NGC 278 , did it appear as a fuzzy disk, or just a slightly out of focus star, but you knew what it was???
I've searched in the area for 278 in the past, never from a dark sky site, and not found it.

Awesome video as always . Thanks for sharing.

First, thanks

Yes, it's a small galaxy in a rich area of stars. So at 50x it does look like a fuzzy star in a field of pinpoints from a 4" refractor's perspective.

It does have a nice fairly high surface brightness, so it will promote high magnifications.
