Hello fellow DSO enthusiasts!
I dunno if there is already a similar thread on this or not, but, here goes.
So, last year, when I got my scope, the timing was just right to take in the galaxies in Leo, Virgo and Coma Berenices, Ursa Major, etc. Such wonders I discovered in these constellations in my first year back into the hobby. Here is the thing though.
Every time I tried to observe all those galaxies that make up the Virgo Cluster, I felt overwhelmed. Just scanning around the sky in that region was faint-fuzzies a go-go. I didn't know where to start. I think at best I identified Markarian's Chain, but everything else was just faint little galaxies and I didn't know what to look at.
Now ... here we are 12 months later almost. I feel that my skill with the dob is up to speed, and I have 'learned to see' far better than a year ago. can anyone help me with what to expect? Strategies for hopping from galaxy to galaxy? Experienced observers of Virgo, how do you go about it?
