Another Great Night

After a winter of very limited viewing we have had 4 straight nights of superb seeing in Michigan. Even M101/102 was easily detectable in the extra clear/steady skies.

I was able to put 10 galaxies and 5 globulars in the 15x70s last night. I didn't even get the telescope out. I laid in my homemade "starchair" with a blanket over my legs and just cruised the Milky Way and beyond.

I am also amazed by the number of faint satellites that I see while looking through the binos. No doubt about it, the binos are a LOT of fun! I find my dreams of future toys torn between a big DOB and big binos.
