I am thankful that I can manage wide-field astrophotography, because I am not good at through-the-scope shots. Below is a photo of the nova that was discovered just last week in Delphinus. It's a bright one - right now around magnitude 5.0 or so, and this picture shows the area it is located in. Sagitta is at upper right, while Delphinus is below. This week's Eyes on the Sky video shows exactly how to hop to this spot, and see the nova with binoculars too.

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
