Re: (IAAC) Obj: M45 Pleiades - Inst: Orion 6" Dob
:Penny, I've GOT to get out observing with you some time: from this and
:posts of yours in the past, it sounds like you have a *remarkable* visual
:acuity. Do folks in your local club comment on your perception?
Lew, people do comment about it as if I have the patience I can notice
things that no other observers do. I should be doing Jovian observations,
huh? Sometimes I can get five Trap stars too, but I do better picking up
fainter, non-stellar detail, especially colored.
If I *ever* come to Washington State for any reason, I will definitely keep
you in mind. Wish I knew you last year as I was going there almost once a
month and dying to find some local observers.:-).
