    Default First 30 Messier - DSO's for City Dwellers



    Attached is my submission for the Messier 30 cert... All objects were viewed in a 10" Lightbridge Dobsonian, mostly from a red/white LP zone in town (with the exception of Messier 51, which was viewed from a green zone.) These are the first 30 Messiers I observed, first sight dated from between June and October 2009 when I was logging the majority of first sightings in my telescope. Enjoy!
