Messier 34

16 11 2014

I was never much of a binocular observer, even though I loved using binoculars in the daytime when I was a kid. I jumped from naked-eye observing straight to a 10-inch reflector as a teenager. Since starting at S&T, I’ve been “backtracking,” trying to view all those things people start with in binos. It gives me something to do when I have just a small patch of sky or time. I’m getting closer to knocking off the Astronomical League’s Bino Messier list, anyway.
