Re: (IAAC) Obj: Comparison of M22 and M55 - Inst: 10x50 binoculars
It seemed to me that, NGC 253 is one of the best galaxies for binoculars
(M31 is the exception). I think it does not appear stellar. I don't expect
to see structural details but I think its unsymmetrical shape can be seen. I
plan to search it after midnight so most of the city lights will be off.
Anyway, whether I can see NGC 253 or not, there is a large number of objects
that I can see with my old binoculars.
