My observation log – Messier and Caldwell

Amateur astronomy is less about theory, more about observation, photography, creating observation logs, home catalogs. Let this be my photo catalog, with the intention to make it as complete as possible with as many quality photos – rather than just snapshots – as possible. Do note that it was never my intention to check elements of a list for the sake of checking only, so although I’ve been into this hobby for many years, my list has some surprising gaps. The other issue is that I don’t know if/when I’m going to image from the south again.

Jól kalibrált monitoron mindegyik számnál elkülönülő árnyalat látszik. Ha mégsem látszanak, akkor a megjelenített képek színhiányosan rajzolódnak ki. A monitort valószínűleg kalibrálni kell.

You should see distinct shades for each number. If those shades are not clearly visible, the displayed pictures will lack accuracy. Your display most likely needs to be calibrated (brightness, gamma, contrast etc.).
