Beginners Luck

I had a chance to try out my new telescope on the evening of March 2nd. Saw a lot of cool looking celestial objects. Here are pictures I took of a few of my favorites.

M42 - Orion Nebula (Wide Field Photo with airplane entering frame at upper left)

M42 - Orion Nebula (Zoom Photo)

M44 - Beehive Star Cluster

M45 - The Pleiades Star Cluster (The seven bright stars are called the seven sisters)

M81 & M82 - Galaxies

NGC869 & NGC884 - Double Star Clusters (in Constellation Perseus)

I plan to dedicate an entire post to the Orion Nebula (my favorite constellation), so check back soon.

Clear Skies!
