Not since the summer before I went to university have I done this – turned a telescope to the skies.
But, and although the viewing site was less than ideal (looking north/north west only), I have just spent a very enjoyable two hours doing that again.
Sights taken in included M13 (Hercules globular cluster):
Ring Nebula (M57):
And the Helix Nebula:
(NB none of these are my photographs, but rather than put up images from Hubble or similar, I thought I use images that were closer to the real experience for me. If you think they look unimpressive that is your problem, not mine!)
