Hi all,

Last week I observed M56/M57, albireo, Mars and... for the first time
ever from my own light polluted backyard the Veil nebula or Cygnus Loop.
Thanks to the OIII filter. For a detailed report and some TELRAD finder
charts of the Veil Nebula, follow this link:

At the top there is a report on my Mars observation. Just scroll down
the screen and you will find the observing-report on the Veil and the
others mentioned above.

Best Regards,

Math
