Observing December 12th 2010

Well I got out to a dark site last night, and though I only spent about 5 hours there, and though I didn't do anything with the Herschel 400, I did get some observations of some new and old objects in. I'll post up what I observed later today (I have a root canal and dental surgery today in about an hour so it will depend on how I feel after that). My favorite object though was NGC 1360, which I observed after visiting NGC 1535 again. Here is my sketch and observation of that image:


































I did this sketch with the Ultrablock Narrowband Filter to give a comparison of what I first saw vs. what I saw with the OIII filter and using averted vision.
