Hi Kim.
The seeing is torture a lot of the time when sky is cold and clear. But alas one has to make the best of what Mother Nature dishes out.

Observation Poster: Jim Andeson <madmoon@bellsouth.net>
Observer: Jim Andeson
Your skills: Intermediate (some years)
Date/time of observation: 12222000-21:10EST
Location of site: Phelps Lake, NC (Lat 35:44, Elev 20')
Site classification: Rural
Sky darkness: 7-8/10 <1-10 Scale (10 best)>
Seeing: 3-4/10 <1-10 Seeing Scale (10 best)>
Moon presence: None - moon not in sky
Instrument: 30CM/F:10 SCT/LX200
Magnification: 55X,117X, 138.5X, 203X, 254X, 314X
Filter(s): UHC, O-III
Object(s): NGC247
Category: External galaxy.
Class: 
Constellation: Cet
Data: mag 9.2v  size 19'  X 5.5'
Position: RA 00:47.1  DEC -20:46
Description:
55X - The galaxy is oriented early N.-S. The oval core is bright and soft without hint of a stellar nucleus. The halo is faint, but apparently oval with an extension projecting to the north ending in a faint knot. The southern arm if there is one is lost in the glare of TYC 5849-2407-1, a 9.47m star. I can repeatidly see the extension and knot with averted vision, but I cannot hold it more than a second or so. The seeing is wracking havoc with the background stars.
