Welcome to the June EAA Observing Challenge
This month’s challenge takes us across the warming western skies from South towards the Northwest. In case your home observing spot faces west, that's pretty convenient...but...I’ve also included a few objects that may get you to move briefly out of the comfort of your home turf.
The list includes a comet, several galaxy-supernovae and a variety of beautiful and unusual galaxy types and interactions. In rough ‘transit time’ order, the June lineup is listed in the table below. There are some interesting and challenging objects on the list so, hopefully, they’ll be fun and educational to observe.
One final note to add is that my mount is currently enjoying a well-deserved rest and is now visiting the iOptron shop for a nice little tune-up. Hence, below you will find only a few of the captures from the listing of Challenge objects - those that I had managed to obtain earlier in May before my mount left on it's short (I hope) vacation.
Challenge Info Continues in next post
