June Observing List
 
   
     
     
   

These observing lists have been designed with objects for all sizes of telescopes and observer ability. Try the Easy objects first and work your way down the lists until you can move to the next level.

The easy objects are for people who are starting out or have telescopes that are around 100mm in aperture.

The medium objects are fore those people who can identify their way round the sky and have a telescope less than or equal to 200mm.

The hard objects are for people who have telescopes that are larger than 200mm in aperture and are proficient at starhopping or who have digital setting circles.

Happy hunting.

   

If you do not have charts, here is some links to public domain star charts produced by the The Mag-7 Star Atlas Project. The charts will be useful for most of the Easy List and some of the Medium List. More detailed charts like Uranometria will be required for the Hard List.

The Mag-7 Star Atlas -- capable of being printed at reasonable resolutions on the average home printer. The Mag-7 Star Atlas plots stars down to Magnitude 7.25, with double / multiple stars indicated by a thin horizontal bar. Plotted Deep Sky Objects include all objects on the Messier list, the RASC's finest NGC list, and the Herschell 400 list --- more than 550 DSO's in total.
