Nice bling Alan. I also migrated my old observations to here. Lately I am trying to redo the Messier 110 using my 6" refractor, just for fun.

M1110 - :lol: Thanks Mark, I never noticed! I guess that is what we used to call the "new math" back in the day!

And thanks to JT and his OCD for fixing my spastic finger action. Perhaps I dozed off while typing it and shot off that extra one!

Michael and Andrey, thanks as well. While I have not earnestly set about to re-observe all, I have re-observed some in the course of chasing galaxies with the 17.5" at the dark site. I think it might be fun to try it with the 10x50 binoculars from there. I can see several naked eye and have seen several through the 8x50 RACI. We shall see!

Hopefully they will ressurect the Southern award here as well. :)
Alan

Bryan,

It's time for you to get off your keister and submit the paperwork for your bling. I know you've done it, you've just got to spend the 5 minutes to prove it.

Yeah, my OCD is not so strong that it fixes intentional boo-boos. Nice though, it did make me chuckle.

PS, I forgot to put a mention to Bryan in my previous post.

And I was oblivious to it until I saw Mark's reference. Then I looked more closely and saw my flub in his quote of the original title. Then I too had a chuckle! :)

Messier and Mechain were simply not that energetic as to accumulate that many objects! :lol:
