I can only use my 10x50 binocular to see M42. What else can I see? May be I am too green to identify them even I got a $19 star atlas...

Hi Willis,

From my very limited knowledge, you actually can see a lot of deep sky objects with the aid of 10X50 binoculars.

Winter:M42 Orion Nebula,M45 Pleiades, M41 an open cluster,M36,M37,M38 open clusters in Auriga.....There should be more

Let me give you this website introducing some deep sky objects that are easily seen. The webmaster, oldfield, is a mamber of the society.

Best regards,
Wales

P.S. Do your "$19 star atlas" means the fluorence plainsphere (香港夜光旋轉星圖) that is publish by us?

Hi Wales!
   Thanks for ur informative reply. According to ur information, I should be able to see more. I guess the main problem is that I am inexperience to figure them out from the sky. This is not due to the instrucment's limitation. I will try again later!! BTW, I am using 香港旋轉星圖, not 香港夜光旋轉星圖. It was published by 香港天文學會.

Willis

Dear Willis,

Please feel free to ask questions here. I invite you to join the 7th Feb International Year of Astronomy Opening Ceremony and Roadside star gazing. Our society members will bring about 20 telescopes to the star Avenue, TST on the coming Sat. You may also talk to our members.

Dear Willis,

試試找機會去水口, 或者萬宜東壩等地方, 你就可以睇倒更多! :-)

遇著天氣好, 成天都係 deep sky, 你睇倒矇查查, 一隊支鏡過去, 即刻就睇倒, 唔使 map

Really!  But I don't know how to go to 水口? It would be nice if group activity can be organized.

It's quite easy to get there, just take a bus from Tung Chung and be prepared to walk around 15-20 minutes.

Dear Oldfield,
  Thanks for telling. But "在東涌坐 11 號巴士中途下車,步行約二十至三十分鐘可達觀星地點", I don't know where is "中途下車"? If I tell the bus driver I want to do stargazing in 水口, do u think he/she will know where to drop me?

Willis
