Targets for 2019 (and on!)

Decided having got a book from the Astro show last week to try and image as many Messier objects as I can.

The book gives the co-ordinates and best months/times to image them all although some aren't possible from the UK!

Some of them are a bit boring and just open clusters etc. and some are quite difficult and low in the sky but it will bring a bit more purpose to the year.

I will still drift off and grab some NGC's and IC's I'm sure!!

 

Cheers

Ron

Good plan Ron. What was the book? Last time I was in RVO they has a book called something like the "top 100 astrophotography targets"
