Autumn Binoculars Observing and Spooky Halloween Targets - Chris Vaughan and Jenna Hinds
• Seasoned observers often suggest exploring the night sky with binoculars. That’s because they’re readily available, portable, comfortable to use, and they show a wide swath of sky – making finding targets easy. Lots of nebulas, star clusters, and even galaxies are plenty large enough to see in binoculars. We’ll highlight some spectacular autumn binocular targets for you to check out on your driveway, at the cottage, or on that last camping trip of the season. Then we'll switch gears and share some spooky Halloween-themed targets for eyes, binoculars, and backyard telescopes.
