Binocular views tonight

Just home from work. Good clear night so just out for a while with my celestron 15x70 and 8x43 hawke frontiers. 

A quick look at Orion nebula.

Then found the bee hive cluster for the first time. Using Sirius and Procyon to guide me in a straight line. 

Still learning a lot and enjoying this relaxing hobby.

Hope to study the bee hive cluster in better detail later this week with William optics 73mm telescope.

Or would I fit it in view with the 120ed and 26mm nagler?

The beehive should give a very pleasant view in either scope, and should easily fit the field of your big Nagler on the 120ed. ?

 

While you're setup you should be able to locate lots of other bright DSO's from your star atlas or planetarium program. Lots of bright Messiers on show right now.

It was a bit hazy from here, so I didn't go out.
