I am ... not as far along on production on 11 as I should be.  Enjoy 10 now.  :-) 

 

And I am ... not as far along on reading the already produced volumes as I should be.

 

                              Please know that you are not alone in arena of shame.  lol.gif

It's the Witch Head Nebula in Orion, near Rigel--IC2118.

They have not gotten to Orion yet... this one is in Eridanus.

It's right next to Rigel, 6'-10' away, but you're right--it's across the border in Eridanus, in a large triangle of 65, 67, and 69 Eridani.

I always see it in pictures with Rigel, so I assumed.  I didn't realize Rigel was only a few minutes from the border.

My mistake.

Ordered, but I have to say that $16 domestic shipping is preposterous for one book.

Luckily I have friends who want the book as well...we clubbed our orders together.

I find it strange that Equuleus is quoted as three hundred of the pages in an earlier post when Draco and Eridanus are involved in the same tome of ~~ 450 pages.

 

Unless someone was tugging on the lower periphereal anatomical.

It's available now, and at $59.41 with shipping and taxes included, it seems a bit high for a single paperback book.

That struck me as odd too. I guess I'll update on here once my copy gets in by the end of the week or early next week...

I can definitely report that, as much as we love the little horse, there are 28 pages on Equuleus.

I was going to guess a page and a half or so. Shows what I know.

My log is abysmal in Equuleus.

I've only logged:

EQU GAL N7015
EQU GAL N7040
EQU GAL N7046
EQU GAL IC1377

There are PGCs, UGCs and ICs galore in that constellation and not all are in reach of my 12.5", but certainly more than 4 are.

It transits at my latitude around a 70° altitude, and M15 is a great lead in to objects in the constellation.

I've got to get out more...

You know, I did that in late 2018. Turns out retirement is at least as effective as buying new astro gear when it comes to cloud generation. cloudy.gif
