Observation Log 9/26/04

September 26, 2004

Brought out the Celestron NexStar 8i telescope for a few hours of fun.

The main highlight of the evening was a gorgeous look at double star Albireo, at the head of Cygnus. I got an excellent look at the two stars and clearly saw the striking color difference. Also, I found the Ring Nebula, another first.
