............which won't affect my viewing habits in the slightest. What with my work hours, I can really only observe from about 11pm till about 2 or 3am anyway....no matter what time of the year! :D

If Orion is a winter constellation here and seeing its nubula is a fantatsic sight to see, in the summer what would be the main object in the sky to be looking for?


The Milky Way as it spreads across the sky from Perseus -> Cassiopeia -> Cygnus -> Aquila -> Saggitarius is my number one 'target'. So rich in star clusters, mini-asterisms, nebulae, and even a few galaxies further away. Up high, all night long, from June to August.

For me, the Scutum - Serpens Cauda - Scorpio - Sagittarius area is far and away the best part of the whole sky. I look forward to seeing it every year, especially the M objects above the Teapot. Get the kettle on Mia.
