Last night's tally

Had surprisingly good skies last night and Jupiter was very clear, managed to see four moons and very clear colour banding. Also found the ring nebula and M13 again, as well as M92. The new 8mm eyepeice was really good. Clear and a good field of view, seeing individual stars in the globular clusters was easy. It also woked really well in the 2x barlow to give 300x magnification, whcih was very useful for jupiter. I definintly need to improve my star-hopping though, spent too long trying to find stuff, and not enough time looking :)
