    Question Anyone for the Lunar 100?



    The nights here are so light that I've been looking for a project to take me through the summer months. I came across a link to the Lunar 100 and voila, I've got my summer project. I printed off the list and was pleased to discover that I had already noticed quite a few of the features.

    So if anyone else is battling against light pollution and twilight glow you may want to consider it for your summer project too!

    This is an outstanding idea Carol and it dovetails with a long term project I have been planning. I am going to track down and image, at appropriate resolutions, the entire list...no matter how long that takes me. By running the list in the upcoming months it would help me get familiar with many of the more obscure targets. Are you going to keep a log? Maybe try for one of the astro club "merit badges"? That might be entertaining and add some structure to the hunt. Please keep us posted on your progress.

    Excellent, it would be great if others were doing the same so we could compare notes!

    I am planning to keep a log Bill and it does involve photography too! This is what I'm thinking:- I've already got a few photos of the moon, so last night I tried comparing them with on -line Lunar Atlas and identified quite a few features in the list. I'm now ready to look for these features on the moon and observe with some knowledge of what I'm looking at. I want to find them from memory but I'll have my map as back up! I'll also photograph the moon and take more barlowed shots to use in preparation for my next session.

    I'll also write up some personal comments about what I found interesting about each feature. That should keep me busy on cloudy nights!
