    Alan our weather patterns have changed over the last few years and now summer nights are mostly cloudy.

    It feels like an eternity ago since I last viewed anything.
    I did give Rup 106 a go on Friday night, however with Luna having all the fun I was unable to see it(this was also before the aid of a chart).
    I shall wait until the moon goes on vacation for a while and attempt it again.

    For the most part Rup 106 rides nice and high in my skies, so it may only be the LP that will factor into whether or not I see this little guy.
    I will also be on the lookout for Rup 108 while I am shopping in that area.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Feels great finally getting the scope out again.

    Cheers

    Bryan, since you're looking for some challenges, you might like next month's target list. But then again, since you are currently working on the H400 list, you may already have many of them. I guess we shall find out come June 1st.

    As soon as this Moon gets out of the way, I'm going to plunder Ophiuchus, and hopefully nab Pal 5 and 15, and NGC 5053.

    Then there are the goodie bags in Scorpius and Sagittarius...

    I'm going to be veritably glob-smacked.

    Some feedback.

    Ruprecht 106 will not break through my LP.
    Had a go at it last night(Saturday 9th).

    Thanks for the charts and handy info you guys supplied.
    I spent a lot of time searching and star hopping and still no sign of this elusive GC.
    It is interesting to know it is there and I most likely passed over it a few times and was just not able to see it.

    Just thought I would let you know and say thanks again for the charts, the deep sky atlas is especially useful.
    I need to have those printed out in the A3 format as suggested by the author.

    Cheers

    Sorry to hear it can't quite push through Clinton. I know in the past you mentioned the possibility of trying to get out of town to a darker location sometime. Hopefully that is still an option at some point. Glad the atlas is working for you. I think it would be especially nice to get it printed and put in sleeves to put in a ring binder. That way it would hold up well to general use, and you can easily remove a specific chart if need be. Good luck and I hope you continue to have clear skies.

    Clinton, I have the same atlas and couldnt wait to get around to having it professionally printed so, I did it myself on a standard printer. I just set it to print at full scale in landscape view so, each page is basically 3 pages that I cut and taped together. It works perfect!

    That being said, I only printed the northern hemisphere.
