Observers Challenge Reports submissions - PDF



I participate in a monthly online observing report (for both visual & imaging) called the "Observers Challenge", hosted by Roger Ivester and Sue French.
Roger started the monthly challenge report in February 2009. His purpose for the report is to promote observing, (both visual sketching and imaging), by amateur astronomers from around the world to share their observations of a particular monthly deep-sky object. The hope is to inspire fellow amateurs to get outside with their telescopes and observe, regardless of the technique used.

In October of 2019, Sue French, who has been a participant for many years, came on-board to help with co-hosting the challenge.
Here's a link to Roger's index:    Archive for the "Observer’s Challenge Reports"

Roger invited me to join the 'challenge', and I began submitting object reports starting with December 2020.
below you may find my individually submitted report per object, but I highly encourage everyone to follow the above link to Roger's web blog to read the full report containing all participant submissions for the object of the month.

Enjoy! Larry
