M64-Black Eye Galaxy on 6/23/09

Well, I did wind up imaging something this evening, M64 – The Black Eye Galaxy. It’s an interesting imaging target that I’ve only imaged once before. The “black eye” feature is not visible through the eyepiece on my scope, but shows up nicely in images.

I also wound up observing a number of other things visually this evening and my log count is up to 51, so just 19 more Messier observations and I’ll have earned my pin! If the weather is good tomorrow night, then I may finish it then.
