    Nice impressive report number two! I particularly liked your description of NGC1588. Spooky indeed!

    Thanks Andrey, it was indeed a terrific evening. I would guess, given the ins and outs dealing with the fog, and taking a little break, I would say somewhere between five and six hours all told. That of course includes star hopping, observing, consulting the atlas, making notes, etc.

    Thank you John. The twin cores of NGC 1587 and 1588 were a little spooky indeed.

    Thank you Milan. As I said in the first installment, a little over 60 objects were logged during the evening. As to the other question, I really don't like to get into numbers on the grander scale as far as comparisons. Plus there is also a difference in what is in my current log and what I've observed over the course of my life. You may recall me saying that for a long, long time I never kept a log. That is why I encourage everyone to do so, as you do miss out on a lot of self-satisfaction by not. But I was lazy in that regard, and I regret that very much. But I did have a general sense of what I've seen, though no official record. Suffice it to say, once I stared keeping track a few years ago, I pretty much started all over again. But I know I have observed far more over those years than what is currently found in my personal log or that I have reported on this site. I also only keep track of DSO related observations and do not keep track of any other objects or features.
