I spent Saturday night at the orange-zone Naylor Observatory. The transparency was good but the seeing was not. It got rather chilly with temperatures dropping to the upper 40s.
At the moment, the observatory is only open to ASH members and members are encouraged to use their own telescopes and eyepieces.
I brought my 6" f/10 Celestron NexStar Evolution SCT. It was the first time that I used this telescope somewhere other than from my driveway. I employed a 24mm Explore Scientific 68 degree eyepiece (62x), a 17.3mm Tele Vue Delos (87x), and 8-24mm Tele Vue Click Stop zoom eyepiece (62 to 188x), and an Orion UltraBlock narrowband filter on some nebulous deep-sky objects. The 17.3mm Delos produced some excellent views and stayed in the focuser much of the time. The 17.3mm Delos yields almost the same true field of view as my 19mm Tele Vue Panoptic (79x) but with a more spacious apparent field of view of 72 degrees. It is also more comfortable to use.
Throughout the night I observed the 60%-illuminated waxing Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, 17 Cygni, 61 Cygni, Albireo, Porrima, the Jaws asterism, the Mini-Cassiopeia asterism, the Mini-Coathanger asterism, the Stargate asterism, IC 4665, M3, M4, M5, M6, M7, M8, M11, M13, M15, M16, M17, M18, M19, M21, M22, M23, M24, M26, M27, M29, M30, M31, M32, M39, M52, M62, M71, M80, M81, M82, M83, M92, M94, M103, M104, M106, M107, NGC 457, NGC 6210, NGC 6572, NGC 6826, NGC 6992, NGC 7009, NGC 7662, NGC 7331, and NGC 7789.
The views of the galaxies that I was able to see early on were compromised by moonlight, of course. The galaxies in the Virgo cluster were drowned out by the presence of the Moon. After the Moon had set, the spiral galaxy NGC 7331 in Pegasus looked better than I had expected. However, I was unable to see M110, although Andromeda was still quite low at the time.
I had particularly good views of IC 4665, M6, M7, M13, M15, M39, and M80.
I viewed the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Alcor-Mizar, Omicron Cygni, Collinder 399, Melotte 111, M6, M7, M8, M11, M13, M22, and M24 with my 12x50s. I tracked passes by the ISS, the Lacrosse 5 satellite, and the NOSS 2-2 (D) satellite, as well.
I also took a number of afocal iPhone photos through the Celestron SCT.
