Deepsky Top-100 (15): Stargate, Jaws and M 104

I just added a wonderful trio of deepsky objects to my Deepsky TOP 100, Stargate, Jaws and M 104.

Stargate and Jaws are two asterisms from Phil Harrington’s book “The Deepsky, an introduction”. They will help you to locating M 104, a bright galaxy near the Corvus-Virgo border. All three objects are very easy to locate and recognize, even from a suburban backyard. I found them with my 8-inch in a heavily light polluted southern sky. My advice, get out and hunt them down!
