Deep sky nights......
On Monday January 23 I did some deepsky observing with the TAL 200K mounted on the EQ6, equipped with the Argo Navis Digital Telescope Computer. I used a range of eyepieces from 32mm to 5mm, sometimes combined with the Tal 2x barlow. I also used the 85mm Zeiss refractor with the 20-60x Zeiss zoom-eyepiece and a 32mm Televue Plossl. I observed from 20.00 hours UT till 00.30 hours UT. The seeing varied during the evening between 4 and 6 on a scale of 10 (10=best). The objects observed where M 42, M 43, the Eskimo nebula (NGC 2392), NGC 2903, Castor, Saturn / M 44, Alcor and Mizar, Sirius, Iota Cancri, Polaris and M 65 / M 66.
