Subject: Some wanderings inthe winter skies Sent: Saturday, December 30, 2006 20:44:30 From: Charles and Carol Piso (email@example.com) Charles from Boston again..... I just wanted to wish you and your the very best of new years and share with you a pleasant night of observing I had . I ttok out my trusty and mighty ETX 90 EC and took a look at some old friends for the first time this season. M45 was absoloutely spectacular and showed just a hint of nebulosity M42 again amazing and I also used my Orion Ultra block and my newly aqurired OIII believe it or not tonight I would have to give the edge to the ultra block Double Cluster every time i look at this gem with the ETX 90 I am always amazed that the whole complex structure is viable in my TV 32 MM PL. Just like someone spilled dimonds onto a black felt. And last but not the least for all the Lunies out there I took quite a bit of time just meandering around the moon Gassendi and the Ibrium Basin were a treat to just site see around so far I have picked off about thirtyfive of the lunar 100 and as soon as i can scan in some of my sketches I'll e-mail them off to you. And one last note this last year I have really used to a great benifit Dr Clays Book The complete Amature Astronomers Hand book realy a find I cant believe I lat it slip by unnoticed for all these years.Mike here: Yep, Dr. Clay Sherrod's book is a good one to have. I have a review of it on the Accessory Reviews: Books page.
