Phil Harrington is challenging the observer's world with his 'Cosmic Challenge'. Bring it on Phil! This is my adventure completing the challenges.
CHALLENGE 6... Messier 13
Oh boy let's start this challenge off with my favorite star cluster, known as the keystone cluster in Hercules. This one still gives me a little bit of a challenge aiming my finder-scope at it, but I like keeping my observing skills sharp with tricky deep sky objects. I'm 12 years seasoned on some Messier's so watch-out.
Telescope: 12 inch dobsonian Eyepiece: 26mm
Extra's: Love slapping my 2x Barlow on that!
This one was great, what's next Phil? Hmm.. endless possibilities.
