Re: (IAAC) Obj: Comparison of M22 and M55 - Inst: 10x50 binoculars

Erhan, what a lovely set of Summer binocular logs you've given us! You
hit very quickly on one of the most exciting things about binocular
deep-sky observing: the ability to compare-and-contrast many objects
that may be widely separated in the sky, all in a few seconds!

Late Spring and Summer are an excellent time to make this discovery,
as binoculars even under suburban lights will show many of the open
and globulars clusters, and bright and dark nebulae in these regions
of sky. Winter also offers a dizzying variety of open clusters and
associated nebulosity to try your binocs on!

Come Fall or early Spring though, try to get out under those darker
skies of the country, to do justice to the many "bright" galaxies
which even 10x50 binoculars will reveal in dark enough conditions.

Thanks again, Erhan - keep 'em coming. :)
