Guy Thornley turned up at about 8:30 PM as Dave and I were working through the Virgo cluster.

I went through the Virgo objects quite quickly identifying them on the laptop and the eyepiece. There was no intention in logging each object with detailed descriptions, the systematic working through of the list was the intention.

Here is the path through the cluster that I took.

It is often hard to decide which path to take with so many objects in a small area of the sky.

The DSCs are perfect for bringing speed to the hunting of objects. The DSCs were about 10-15 arc minutes out throughout the night, but I think this is due to poorly positioned alignment stars. Offsetting this error was easy and objects were always within the FOV.

Finished at about 9:15 PM and put the scope away in the Observatory. Another good night at the scope.
