We have vacation today and I took a day off on Monday too so i've got a nice 4 days to stay up late at night.. so far it was quite depressing.. I was all sleepy and everything, very bored. Then I look at the forecast for tonight and it changed my life from miserable to very rich. CLEAR SKY TONIGHT! AT LAST!!!
My day transformed from lazy to hyper in a matter of 5 minutes, I am preparing full steam ahead right now, I am so happy
15 days ago I asked the people in the DSO forum to help me build a program which I could not wait to start then (It didn't happened because of clouds), that was 15 days ago but currently, it's a 98.8% moon at night and over 30 Celsius of temperature, not the same thingtonight the ground will produce probably important turbulence as well as the full moon, so I am searching for easy bright objects only.
I want to drive to a calm darker spot for an observation anyways, I just need to do it and to go there.
If you have some special selections for me, I am listening!
With the same direction as my previous thread:
I am not looking for:
- Websites or links to somewhere else.
- Using Safari or Stellarium.
- A heavy marathon list of NGC
- Any information that is not 1 bright object you would like to observe yourself tonight for a specific reason.
I am looking for custom pick objects, maximum 1 or 2 objects per user, but something special and boosting your motivation, I want to share a unique experience on less things. My observation will be done with my usual 200x1000 Newtonian with tracking. My latitude is 45d Montreal.
The program must revolve around this.
- Bright open clusters.
- Star clouds.
- Bright: Red - Yellow - Orange stars
- Bright: Blue stars.
- Bright and/or easy double stars.
- An observation of the full moon with my darkest color filters + a sketch.
- A fast observation of Jupiter, Saturn.
INCLUDED FROM MY PREVIOUS THREAD:
- Stars: Albiero, Arcturua, Antares, Alkalyropos
- Ophiuchus clusters: IC 4665, Serpents IC 4756, Oph NGC 6633
Feel free to suggest!
