Yeah, NGC188 is really quite sensitive on sky conditions. I love how close to the Polaris this cluster it.

Nice selection of globulars!

I see you also observed NGC188. This is another object that 'disappears' easily in marginal conditions. But it is really nice under excellent conditions. It's also circumpolar.

Hmm ... it sounds interesting.

I will see it.

I guess they pubish ther Betas sooner so as to receive more and eariler feedback? Sounds good.
Yeah, sounds good.

Duolingo had been in pthe rocess of developing a Hawaiian course (yey!). To my happiness and surprise it got out too soon (in Beta).

I noticed that the course consists of very few lessons, 10 or so. I don't know what it means. Are they going to expand it with time?

Also, Navajo courses are published in Beta, and also with very few lessons (for the record, I don't like how Navajo sounds although I like other NA languages)

In any case I haven't seen such thing about the other languages I studied earlier so, if there isn't a mistake, perhaps they changed their policy somehow: I guess they publish their Betas sooner so as to receive more and eariler feedback? Sounds good.

Do you do anything special to see the nebulos areas in M45? I have never seen these with any certainty.                                                                                                                                                                                   
Yeah, this is very hard to observation. Only one things help here - very dark sky. And even on dark sky there nebulosities are very faint.

The next time you are in that part of the sky, you might want to check out IC59 and IC63 near Gamma Cassiopiae, a star also known as Navi ;) These are also something I like to observe when I am in a place with sufficiently dark skies.                                                                                                                                                                           
Yeah, I know about this and I tied, bit I was not successfull. :-\



Tonight after moonset I observed again.
I saw globular clusters M15, M2, M75, M71, M56, NGC6934 and NGC7006, open clusters M39, M29, NGC6910 and NGC188 and planetary nebulae M57 and M27

Interesting you mention NGC288. While enjoying a pizza this evening, I paged through a catalog of globular clusters to observe, and NGC288 was the first one listed. I kind of did a double take when I saw NGC253 on the finder map for NGC288. That will definitely be on the list the next dark night I am out.

I enjoy looking at the Heart and Soul nebulas, even though there is not a whole lot to see there, even with a filter. The next time you are in that part of the sky, you might want to check out IC59 and IC63 near Gamma Cassiopiae, a star also known as Navi ;) These are also something I like to observe when I am in a place with sufficiently dark skies.

Do you do anything special to see the nebulos areas in M45? I have never seen these with any certainty.

I know there will be several more opportunities to observe NGC2419, one of my favorites. Last night's poor transparency was epic ;) I definitely also need to check out Palomar 2. When we have decnt skies.

This week, there is an asteroid occultation Friday evening, as a time when I should be doing a public astronomy event. I'm thinking of seeing if they can be combined.

One other thing. My neighbor claims they had a bear in their yard last night. I heard deer only about 50 feet away while I was observing. I wouldn't know a bear was there until it swatted at my head to decapitate me  :o This time of year, bears are especially carnivorous, as a kill can put on a lot of fat and weight for the upcoming hibernation :(
