1 Year Anniversary of the Observer 70

Yesterday (September 9) was the 1 year anniversary of owning and using the observer 70mm.  The telescope came in one big box while I was at school.  Strange because this was my sisters birthday, wish her a happy one.

Don’t have too much time.  Had a killer observing run on Saturday til’ about 1 in the morning.  Saw Capella, Auriga, and even Orion in the pollution.  I also logged some more Messier objects, it’s winding down, I am planning to finish up by the time the moon gets big again.

The highlight of the evening was seeing the arrival of Jupiter.  It was big and bright, and still is to this day, my favorite planet to observe.  Hoping to do a more complete blog sometime this week.

  1. HI JUSTIN;
    MY COMPUTER SEEMS TO HAVE A MIND OF IT’S OWN,SOMETIMES IT LETS ME SEND A COMMENT SOMETIMES NOT. INJOYED YOUR ARTICLE ON MIRROR SIZE IN THE 1950’S. I WAS MOST IMPRESSED
    WITH YOUR MOST RECENT SKETCH OF THE M-42,JUST OUTSTAND-
    ING.ONE CORRECTION MOST OF THE SKETCHS IN THOSE DAYS WERE PUBLISHED IN ” STROLLING ASTRONOMER ” A CLIDE TOMBOW PUBLICATION. HE’S THE GUY WHO DISCOVERED PLUTO.
    I IMAGINE YOUR ALMOST DONE WITH FINE GRINDING BY NOW, KEEP ME UPDATED.
