At long last, Astronomy magazine is featuring a one page "what's up this month" for binocular viewing. Phil Harrington is writing the monthly piece...or at least this month's piece. I welcome this addition. It's a long time coming IMO. They always have a similar section for telescopes of course...and I have found it to be well writen and very informative even though I don't own a 'scope, but it is nice to see a dedicated section for binoculars. :grin:

NW;

That's cool. Will it cover a range of easy to tough binoc objects....or just the easy/brightest ones?

It's monthly so I imagine that Phil will focus on regions of the sky that are up and accessable for the monthly. Easy, tough, brightest? Well, I think he makes his descriptions assuming that you have at least 10x50 bins, maybe 7x50.
