Need help picking a target for tonight.

 

The setup is C8 edge HD, hyperstar, 2600mc duo, IDAS NBZ UHS (if needed). 

 

Should be a super clear night with a nearly new moon. 

 

Thanks for the help in advance!!

 

Clear skies,

 Walter

This is a collection of deep sky object lists which I consult when I want to find something new and exciting to image: https://www.deepskyw...sky-guide.html 

 

The full download is 160 pages of objects, so I usually only look at the "best 650" list sorted by constellation. 

 

Edit: for some reason when clicking on the link, extra garbage is added after the html. if you delete everything after html, then the link will work.

I look at this site from time to time https://sky-tonight.com. I use Stellarium to plan things out as to when they are up where I want them and the best for my site.
