    Default A summer night with the 8x56 Docter Nobilem: on the 23rd July, 2019



    Hello all,

    the red sunset on the otherwise blue skies has been a good reason to try out the new-to-me 8x56 Docter Nobilems under the summer skies.

    As always with the binoculars, the first DSOs to see are the globular clusters of the season.
    The bright M3 at the border between Bootes and Canes Venatici, and the M13 and M92 in Hercules make always the show.

    It took some time to wait on the darker skies to get the big and wide spaced M10 and M12 globulars together into the field of the binoculars in the western Ophiucus . And it is always a rewarding view.
    As all good ones for getting started are seven, I have changed my observing site in the backyard to find the small bright M15 in western Pegasus, and finally the sparse globular M71 in Sagitta.

    The next ones, before the skies became darker, have been the popular open cluster.
    Moving from south west towards east, they have been the IC 4665, Mel 186, NGC 6633, IC 4756, in Ophiucus and Serpens Cauda, and then the Coathanger Cr 399 in Vulpecula.

    And later in Cygnus, the NGC 6866 unresolved bright cotton, the NGC 6910 looking nearly star-like close to Sadr, the M29 another fuzzy star, and further towards Eta Cygni, the NGC 6871. The other easy open cluster in Cygnus has been the large sparse Ru 173, and then in Vulpecula the large NGC 6940.

    Following the galactic equator towards NE, the NGC 7062 and NGC 7082 have appeared as condensations in the rich field of stars. The easily resolved M39 has completed this tour.

    After a short break, the Milky Way became structured with the big le Gentil 3 Northern Inkspot, and with the Great Ridge, a good reason to look after some emission nebulae.

    The first nebula to find has been the extended Sharpless Sh2-131 (IC 1396 Elephant Trunk). The glow has been remarkably bright and well detached, also thanks to the dark Barnard’s nebulae B170-171 to the east of the Garnet Star Mu Cephei. The North America Nebula NGC 7000, and the Pelican Nebula IC 5070 have been sufficiently bright to enjoy the views, and so it has been the Butterfly Nebula in the IC 1318 nebular complex around Sadr.

    An important test on the performance of the binoculars and on the quality of the skies, are the nebulae in the Eta Cygni region:
    The big cloud of the open cluster Roslund 5 has been decorated to the west with the faint large Lynd’s bright nebula LBN 175,
    and to the east with another large diffuse and faint LBN 159.
    The Fish On The Platter dark nebula B144 has revealed some structures pointing towards south.
    The other dark nebulae have been the LDN 741, 772, 778 etc. group south off Alpha Vulpeculae, even if not resolved into the individual filaments, and finally the large LDN 720 south off Alpha-Beta Sagittae.
    The last object in this tour has been the bright M27 Dumbbell planetary Nebula.

    Encouraged by the nice views of the dark nebulae, I have returned to the Dark Cigar B168 and to the small B363 on the other side of the M39 open cluster. The long Dark Cigar has led me to the resolved NGC 7209 open cluster, and moving north, I have easily found the other bright resolved open cluster in Lacerta, the NGC 7243.

    And now, the visible Milky Way has stretched its band into the constellation of Cassiopeia.
    The field of bright stars in the Cepheus OB2 Association NE off the red Garnet Star (Mu Cassiopeiae) is amazing through any binoculars, and it is one of the Phil Harrington’s binocular objects, the Hrr11.
    The Cave Nebula Sh2-155, south off the ropes of the Cepheus OB3 stars Association, has been tough at the edge of visibility, and so it has been the Wolf-Rayet nebula Sh2-157 at the Cepheus-Cassiopeia corner. These both require nebular filters to increase their contrast.
    Quite a bit brighter has been the Clamshell Nebula NGC 7380. The open cluster M52 below the Harrington’s Airplane asterism, is the light house for the navigation in this area.

    The area of skies between M52 and Eta Persei is overfilled with open clusters, most of them better enjoyed through the big binoculars on a tripod. So, this time I have just viewed the Caroline’s NGC 7789, NGC 457, M103, NGC 663, St2, The Double Cluster, and the Pazmino’s St23.
    Comfortably visible has been also the Pacman’s Nebula NGC 281, and the Alpha Persei Moving Group Mel 20 has been as always rewarding.

    Now, the Milky Way has increased its contrast, and the binoculars have allowed to follow its both bands separated by the Great Rift, and as far as the Serpens Cauda and western Ophiucus. I can’t remember to have seen these Milky Way bands as bright and nicely detached any time before through all my binoculars I have, and I used to have.

    After a short break, I have enjoyed the Scutum Cloud shining, a good reason to revisit the Scutum – Sagittarius area of skies.
    The first object has been the M11 Wild Ducks Cluster showing a very bright cotton ball south of the well visible B111 large dark nebula.
    Following the galactic equator, the next objects have been the M16 Eagle Nebula, the M17 Omega Nebula, and the M18 unresolved open cluster.
    A short stop at the M24 Small Sagittarius Cloud to nail down the resolved M25 and the M23 open clusters.
    The M8 Lagoon Nebula, and the M22 globular cluster to the f east , have been very bright.
    And herewith the M22 became the 8th globular cluster in this observing session.

    Date and time: 23rd July, 2019, 22:15 – 24:00 local summer time
    Binoculars: Docter Nobilem 8x56 (Porro), hand held

    That is really cool JG! Judging by your excellently stated report, you really know the sky! On the other hand, I have a long way to go. I’m also impressed you enjoyed the night with 8x56 binos. I’m not familiar with the brand, but suspect they are of high quality. Thanks so much for sharing your report, I felt as if I was there!

    Thank you Rytch, and great to see you since a long time!

    The Docter Nobilem Porro prisms binoculars have been manufactured until ca 2018 in Germany by Docter Optics (Analytic Jena)
    https://www.docteroptics.com/en/Home.html

    Another premium product of Docter for the astronomy is their 12.5mm ultrawide eyepiece,
    DOCTER completing my ultrawide arsenal

    The Docter company has been founded by Bernhard Docter in the Wetzlar area in West Germany, at that time back in the days.
    Originally, they have been developing and manufacturing optics for industrial applications.
    Docter Optics is now a sub of money investing Noblex.

    A wonderful report, JG! I think the "Dark Cigar" is one of the finest dark nebulae in the northern sky--especially in a dark, transparent sky. For me, the best views have been through my 15x70 Oberwerks binos. I think you must have waited patiently for a long time for the excellent conditions you had. Clear, but smoky here from Canadian wildfires...

    Congratulations!
    A great, productive and succesfull firstlight session! This was one of the most impressive hand held binoculars sessions I have read.
    It is obvious that you belong to the guild of the masters of observation.

    The most beautiful objects of the Summer combined with some very faint and even dark nebulae. Very skillful, thanks for sharing this with us!
    I don't have to ask if you like the Docter Nobilem.......

    Hello John,

    those 60plus DSOs, I have seen them many times before through the binos, but what has been a true surprise - the bands of the Milky Way above and below the Great Ridge. I have never seen them as clearly any time before.

    The Docter Nobilem 8x56 offer the highest contrast views I have ever seen, and this is what counts in the astronomy.
    Now I have the Docter Nobilems 7x50 for the long range daytime viewing, and the 8x56 and 15x60 for the astro.
    Some other binoculars have left my arsenal: Leica Trinovid 8x20, Leica Ultravid HD 8x42, Zeiss West 10x40 T* P Classic limited edition, CZJ Q1 7x50, and two 50mm Jenoptems W.
    Poor old boys should somehow refinance the hobby, though.

    Best,
