    Default Rob's Amazing Messier 30 Certificate Report!



    I started observing these some time ago. I have located 91 Messier objects , all without the help of "goto". I have descriptions, but no sketches or photos. I am attaching a log of Messier 1 - 30.

    Oops, I'll have to upload in my next post. It is in .xlsx format and I couldn't get it to upload. I'll try to save it in .xls

    Very cool Rob. Looks like you have a certificate coming your way. It's very neat that folks are using binos as well.

    Thanks ,

    Light pollution can certainly mess with a person, but lack of a telescope should not. A person can tag 30 Messier objects with just binoculars.

    I like this award system. It gives the observer something to work toward, while sharpen viewing skills.
