15th AprilThe weather during the day had been dry, warm and settled. No real cloud to speak of and relatively low humidity. It was all set up for a night of excellent conditions with local sky conditions as good as they will get. Having concentrated on the Messier objects, and galaxies in particular, for this second session, I wanted to observe some of the less popular objects. With the added bonus of moonless nights, the sky was truly dark at the moment.
