Re: (IAAC) Obj: IC 1296 - Inst: 200mm Newt F5

Steve, you are certainly right that i1296 was quite a challenge for Kim
to attempt to log in an 8" telescope! Of course, that is not to say that
it wasn't also worth trying... :) After all, published magnitudes for
deep-sky objects are not too often a reliable indicator of their visi-
bility in amateur telescopes! At least not in my experience. But maybe
others find published V (or even P or other band) magnitudes to be more
useful for their observing planning? If so, we'd enjoy hearing from you!

Clear skies,
