    Hello Markan,

    they are the best couple of globulars for the binoculars. I love them.

    Hello Markan,

    your add-ons on the globulars are difficult from my location. I have record from times during my holidays:

    M9 together with NGC6356: 25x100 in Dolomiti Mountains, 2010
    M14: 25x100 in Dolomiti Mountains, 2010
    M19 and M107: 20x80 in Dolomiti Mountains, 2007

    Thanks

    I've spotted M71 in Sagitta a couple of times this past week with my binoculars. It's faint but noticeable.

    Hello Markan,

    the M71 through the binoculars is my test on the quality of the night sky. The 25x100 shows some sort of resolution on this globular cluster.

    Thanks for sharing your observation

    I am heading out to dark skies this weekend to test my new 8x50 finderscope. I always take my binos (7x50 Minoltas) and I will be sure to take this list.

    M-13 was my first DSO ever - with my binos.

    Thanks again!
    Peace,
    -Dave

    Hello Dave,

    tonight, the comet Garradd should be close (or overlap) the Globular M71 in Sagitta!

    Don't mis it

    I had a look at M71 and Comet Garradd last night with both binoculars and my 90mm refractor at around 2:30 AM local time. Both were faint but easily noticeable in the FOV. They looked almost equal in magnitude. I couldn't distinguish any tail with the comet. It was like looking at a pair of twin globular clusters.

    Thanks Markan,

    I'll post my observation in the "reports". I have called the view "the double smudge".

    I got Comet Garradd about three weekends ago, before the full moon. I noted no tail at that time either
