Re: (IAAC) Obj: Berkeley 2 - Inst: Celestron 8" SCT, EQ fork mount

Hi Lew,

I'm nominally working on the Herschel 400 list and picking up some Herschel
2's along the way.  But this fall, I have been primarily observing OC's -
mostly along the plane of the galaxy.  The occasional "Herschel object" is a
bonus.  The selection has been pretty subjective and, ideally, includes several
OC's within a few degrees of each other.  I've been using MegaStar5 to
select objects (using the full database with no filtering) and to print
charts.  I've got a few more sequences lined up and ready to go.
Hopefully, I'll get a chance for another run or two next new moon.  Glad
you've enjoyed the reports.

Clear skies,
