Book The Night Sky

The Night Sky
I picked this book up at a garage sale last week and
this book blows it’s competitors out of the water.
Bar none the most comprehensive and through book on it’s topic.
It give a gives definition on most of the subjects in our hobby…

M13

We had a bad storm come through yesterday.
I did not think I would get any scope time….
But I looked out around 10:30 and we had clear sky’s.
So out the the BackYard Observatory I went.

M13 is one of my favorite objects to observe.
From a dark site and a clear night you can naked eye see it
and its a wonderful binocular target!

One of the plus things about having the 5′ clearance for the rolloff is that I can build 5′ shelves on 3 of the wall.
I wired in 6 plugs 2 on each S,W,N walls can’t have to many plugs!
I have LOTS of work space.

BYO BackYard Observatory

I have finished my backyard observatory.
I really REALLY like it.
In the last week I have gotten 12 more hours of observing then I would have without my backyard observatory!
