I used 'Philip's Stargazing with Binocular's' and February's Sky At Night magazine binocular's tour to plan the session. Here I provide the list of targets and a summary of the observations.
M36, M37 and M38: These are all in a similar location in the Auriga constellation. I was tough to find them. They were very faint but pretty sure I got them.
M41 & M44: I hadn't realised but these were in the same part of the sky as the full Moon (in the East) so had no luck.
M81 & M82: Was very keen to see these since the supernova in M82 was peeking and a good target for binocular's. However, unfortunately, the Moon was also the reason I could not do the star hop to find them.
Here is a link to my session log:
I have also been working on a list of the tasks to plan and log a session. Once I have this complete I will post the basics here.
