Re: (IAAC) Obj: Comparison of M22 and M55 - Inst: 10x50 binoculars
NGC253 is easily visible through binoculars from the southern hemisphere
quite easily. If you do see NGC253 try to look for NGC55 as it is nearly
but a little fainter. You may also wish to try for NGC1365 a little later
in the evening.
NGC1365 is one of the best barred galaxies in the sky. From the south a
RFT will show the Sculptor dwarf and the Fornax dwarf with a GOOD DARK
like Coonabarran, Home of the AAT.
