Viewing Report for Terrey Hills Saturday 27 May 2017

28 05 2017

A near perfect night for Viewing, a clear sky & no wind.
Despite the exodus to Coonabarabran, the evening was well attended with 17 members & 10 telescopes & 2 binoculars. It was great to have Ken Scofields, our Treasurer, join us.
Although Trudy & I succumbed to the cold early in the evening, we viewed a succession of Nebulae with Eta Carinae outstanding. For the first time with my 8 inch Schidmt Cassegrain I was able to clearly view the Spiral & Sombrero Galaxies. Ken Jones.
