Thanks, Bob. I enjoy your reports, too.
We have finally cottoned on to the fact that when the vis. mag. is low double, and multiple, stars are the prime targets. On Saturday we had good results with Mintaka and Sigma Orionis and Castor before we got distracted by Tycho on the Moon.
Much as I would like to check out (and keep looking for) Gamma Andromeda, and especially the Andromeda Galaxy, from where we are they are somewhat hidden by the fairly considerable skyglow of the city of Hamilton which is only about 15 km away. Our prime view is toward the east. Eventually, everything comes around though, doesn't it and you can't beat a changing vista to maintain interest.

Clear Skies
