Messier 35 - from a couple of years back

#1

Post by scribbly »

Hello,

please find attached my Messier 35 submission. It goes back a couple of years, and my intention was to add to it. Though it rained, and it rained....for two years. So I have documented my hand written log from my Messier Marathon back in 2021 in MS Word, and is attached

.

I would like to think that as I get more experienced, I can revisit the objects that I would really need much darker skies than I have at home; I was quite surprised at just how many objects were able to be viewed, though I know LP has worsened quite a lot over the past two years (LED lighting).

Thanks, Phil
