These Sharpless objects are interesting. It seems most are too dim for effective visual observation.

Nice night last night. Got some time on SH2 173 The Phantom Of The Opera Nebula. Looks more like a pig snout to me :-)

Cheers

Shawn,

I know I originally said I'd like one, but like Dale, if it's not too late I'd like to increase my order to 2 pins, please.

Thanks,
Dino.

If you added your name to the database but didn't post here please let me know. The database just had an error and deleted some lines and duplicated Vincent Pendleton's line. I don't trust it to be accurate anymore.

OK, kiddies I just can't get enough. I just posted a stack of 12 of my images combined into one. The exposures varied from 1/2000-1/10 second, all at ISO 200. It's under Photos in my 2017 Eclipse folder.

Hey, Michael, glad to hear someone else on the list has been there, done that.  We had a great time, both in Huntsville and the Space Center, but we only explored part of what’s there, so we’re actually thinking of maybe going back.

It was a beautiful day in Huntsville yesterday.  In a way it felt as if I was coming home, even though I didn’t recognize many landmarks.  Lots of changes here in 50 years, as you might imagine.
 
The attached photo shows the tail end of the A12 (photo sent yesterday), with the Space Center Visitor Entrance building on the left and the mighty Saturn V towering in the background, more than 100 yards away.  That red and white flag is the Alabama state flag.
 
The Space Center includes things you just won’t see elsewhere, like a Space Shuttle fully assembled with external tank and solid rocket boosters.  If you get the chance, I completely recommend it.  But there is much more here than the Shuttle and Saturn V.  We had a long full day here and still didn’t see nearly everything.
 
I found that I was still completely gobsmacked by the Saturn V, just as I was when I first saw it up close.  The full, complete hardware is horizontal and safe inside a building, with many other Apollo program exhibits.  It’s the real deal, with all the electronics modules and wiring intact.  Unlike the one in Florida, which when I was there seemed to have no wiring and fake modules.  The outside vertical Saturn V display was built for the purpose and is much stronger and more weather resistant.

Garden Stars tonight at 8:30 pm.  Who wants to come?  I plan to do a recap of the eclipse for a presentation, then we'll go outside and look at the waxing gibbous moon and whatever stars and planets we can see (Saturn for sure).
