Re: (IAAC) Obj: Comparison of M22 and M55 - Inst: 10x50 binoculars



Hi All
NGC253 is easily visible through binoculars from the southern hemisphere
quite easily. If you do see NGC253 try to look for NGC55 as it is nearly
as good
but a little fainter. You may also wish to try for NGC1365 a little later
in the evening.
NGC1365 is one of the best barred galaxies in the sky. From the south a
good 4"
RFT will show the Sculptor dwarf and the Fornax dwarf with a GOOD DARK
sky
like Coonabarran, Home of the AAT.
Clear Skies
