Had a very successful session at Butser Ancient Farm last night between 7-10.30pm. Was a bit windy and cold but very good clear skies.
I used the observers year section for Janaury in ’Philip’s Stargazing With Binoculars’. Here is a list of all the targets I went for and successfully saw - Collinder 65 (Orion), Collinder 70 (Around Orions Belt), M1 (Crab Nebula), M35 (Open Cluster) and M50 (Open Cluster). Here's a link to my session log that includes a little more detail of the observation.
Also, since a few people had their Dobsonian telescopes trained on M82 I had the opportunity to see the new supanova.
