    Very Nice report! I was out checking M-13 out on sunday morning myself. I don't get the view you do with my 5.1 incher but still was fun getting out.

    Hi Skyscanner. A very nice report. I always like reports that start off with the binoculars, and then the canon comes out later for the tougher objects. It looks like you had a great night and added several new Messiers towards your M110 Award. Thanks for your well written report Skyscanner, and best wishes on getting those last 8 Messier objects.

    Great report, SkyScanner. Very detailed, yet kept us all interested right to the end. Thanks
