Observing Notes

Andrew Cooper
28 May 2006 Gila, NM (map)
46cm f/4.5 Deep Violet

Just visible on the very edge of detection tonight even with excellent New Mexico skies at 5000' elevation, confirmed star field with DSS image, located a 5' hazy patch at correct position visible only with averted vision and rocking the 'scope, about as difficult as it gets!
