Thought I would have a look at the Trapezium in M42. Seeing was pretty poor with the stars wobbling about all over the place. The first picture sets the context, the next two have a barlow employed. You can, at least, make out stars E and F on these.
Next was a nice pair of galaxies in Cepheus.
Then C1 or NGC188, also in Cepheus. This is only about 4 deg. from the pole. To quote Stephen James O’Meara in his book “The Caldwell Objects”: “The region is largely devoid of bright stars and avoided by most amateurs whose telescopes ride on equatorial mounts; to point anywhere near the pole with such a set-up requires a truck-load of patience. For these reasons, NGC 188 could be considered one of the most forgotten clusters in the night sky.” Those of us with alt-az mounts have no such problems!
Dew was now taking hold on the scope, and the cold was taking hold on me, and so, to bed!
