    Something to be said for solo observing...and being able to "park your brain" 100M's light years away

    Thanks Dave. Yeah it was a good session. Sounds like you had a globeriffic time yourself Saturday!

    Agreed. Outreach is a good thing, but to get some real serious observing done solo is my preferred method. Though observing with another person of like mind can also be very productive.

    Not that it makes any difference I feel.
    Thank you for a fine session and very readable report.
    Clear skies
    Thank you Peter. No difference what order you read them in. Each is for a different evening so they are independent of one another. I appreciate you taking the time to read and I wish you clear skies as well.

    Thank you for reading and your kind words John. I will say that chasing down and observing such faint galaxies is a tiring endeavor, but very rewarding for me.

    Thank you kindly Milan. I do believe you would be happy if you got the 12 inch. Then again, I've always advocated that people get the largest aperture they can 1 - afford (a hobby is not worth going into debt over or taking money away from necessities), 2 - physically handle without injury and 3 - have adequate storage and deployment space. If you can meet all three requirements, then I'd say go for it.
