Observing Reports


The name of this website was inspired by my passion of observing very faint deep sky objects under dark skies. 

They appear as Faint Fuzzies even in large telescopes, such as my 22" and 30" reflectors, even in my friend's 48" reflector.

This primary purpose of this website is to provide a source of advanced observing guides.  If you have a large telescope and are tired of seeing the same ol' bright stuff over and over again, running out of objects to observe, or like to be challenged - Take a look at the guides I made available for you by clicking on Observing Guides or Downloadable Observing Guides.  

Just released for beginner and intermediate observers: Three Herschel observing guides covering about 1,100 objects visible in 6" to 10" telescopes.

To get an example of what you can see through a large telescope, check out my Observing Reports.

Thanks for visiting!

July 2015:  Many of you are wondering where are my observing reports? I'm perfectly healthy, other than the scare I had in mid-2013.  Couple things going on, so I decided to give astronomy a break until 2016 or 2017 observing season.  I just don't have the drive and currently wrapped up in a couple other things that are more important to my life.    As Arnold says, "I'll be back..."

Here is a couple recent reports, Report 1 and Report 2, from the eyepiece of this telescope.  There are more in the Observing Reports Section
