    Default Friday Night the 10th



    Had a great night out gazing last Friday night.
    We were fighting the clouds, getting a few clear spots for a
    while. Still a very productive night!

    Second night with the new telrad.

    Bagged M27, M29, M38, M56, M71, M31 (Andromeda), M32, M110, and M52
    for the first time.

    Also caught the Ring Nebula again.

    I have to say that the Telrad and the Telrad charts I printed off the web
    are great!

    Saw the Space Station too. That thing is really Bright!
