|Helping the amateur astronomer plan their night by showing what you can see and what it will look like.|
I am looking for astro-photographs that show what the object looks like in the eyepiece. I know this is not what most astro-photographers try to capture. It is my goal to let newbies get an accurate example of what they will see when they are at the eyepiece. If you are interested in contributing to this effort, please submit your images below.
I am currently accepting submissions for Messier, Caldwell, NGC, and IC objects with published magnitudes of 10.5 or brighter. I will be revising the list as I personally check out each object. If you know of an object with a dimmer published magnitude that a newbie should be able to find in an 8" scope, feel free to suggest it.
