Hello and welcome to the May observing challenge!
Whatever your experience or equipment level please feel free to participate. It's always interesting to see the variety of results from different contributors.
M57 "The Ring" - planetary nebula and white dwarf nucleus
M13 globular cluster - try to get the faint galaxy NGC 6207 in the same view
(8) Flora - this large asteroid reaches opposition on May 12 at about mag 10. Try to plot it's path over successive nights
M101 the Pinwheel galaxy - see if you can identify some of the many NGC objects in and around the spiral
Hickson 44 - Leo Quartet galaxy cluster, less well known than the Triplet
C6 Cat's Eye - planetary nebula with nice detail available but it's quite faint
M87's jet - given the new found fame of the resident black hole let's see how much detail we can resolve in the relativistic jet itself
Arp23 - A pair of unusual single-arm'd spirals
Frosty Leo Nebula - try for some color and lobe detail on this cold protoplanetary nebula
Sextans A and B - dwarf galaxies on the edge of the Local Group
ARP242 The Mice - at a distance of 240Mly this is a small target
NGC 3918 - Blue Planetary
NGC 1763 - Emission nebula with embedded star cluster
NGC 3576 - Statue of Liberty nebula
NGC 6188 - Fighting Dragons nebula
NGC 7552 - Grus Quartet galaxies
Many thanks to Saguaro for sanity checking the Northern Hemisphere targets and Anduin for selecting most of the Southern targets.
Finally, please remember to include your acquisition details - equipment, software and exposure time.
