    I did not get to bed proper until about 3:00 am local time because what I wanted to see wasn't in a good position until 2:00 am. The clouds got me again.
    STELLARIUM shows a nice looking bubble nebula that encompasses Udra that is not in my atlas. EZ CMa and the 10.35 magnitude star 5'50.93" east of it are about at its center. The bubble is about 39' in diameter. I wonder if j.gardavsky has viewed it with his binoculars yet or if he even knows about it?

    Though the sky has been so poor the past few months I am largely out of practice.
    WOW Bryan! I love your dual telescope setup.

    Hello Donald,

    and thank you for asking.
    In fact, this nebula has not been as yet on my list, even if it is in the IDSA p.84
    It is the Sharpless Sh2-308 Wolf-Rayet type of nebula, NNW off the sparse open cluster Cr 121, in the Delta CMa area.
    With its declination of -23°, it may be tough above my backyard, requiring the 6" refractor.

    Thank you also for your report,

    JG

    I was just out piddling around with my 7x35s. I can still easily find M47 even with these. I could not see the 1981 crocodile. I was hoping for Chi Dra but it is still to low for me right now. I have 3 targets picked for the early morning I hope the clouds stay away.

    Not to derail this thread, but I think that's a great example of a report.
