What are your favorite late summer NV targets and what equipment do you like using for it? All my observing is in light pollution, so I don't know if there are some other good ones out there in a darker sky.
In general for me I really like the Swan Nebula. The Lagoon is nice also, but the Swan seems to have the best detail. For me this is best in my 10 inch dob, but I usually use the 6 inch F4 because it's easier to setup.
I like M13 and other Globulars. For these the 8 inch F10 really excels.
The Cygnus area has some great objects, but here I like using lower power such as 1x and 7x (50mm guide scope). My favorite object in this area is the Sadr region. This is an area where it'd be nice to have some better capabilities. Like a fast camera lens. I can get a pretty reasonable view with the 6 inch F4 using .7 reduction and my 40mm plossl afocal. It's a pretty crazy imaging train coming off the scope though!
The Milky way at 1x is pretty cool. Sometimes I like sweeping this area with the 6 inch F4 or the 50mm guide scope. Some neat dark nebulas in the middle of everything.
I do a lot of random sweeping with NV.
What are some of your favorites.
