December : Venus, which is currently the evening star, sits within 1 degree of globular cluster M22 on the 2nd and 3rd and within 2 degrees of Saturn on the 10th. The stunning reflection nebula Pleiades is available in the evening and is an easy target for modest sized telescopes. M42 Orion reaches the zenith around midnight which is ideal for photography with all it’s gems including Running Man, Rosette, Horsehead, Witches Head and all the other summer favourites. For those up a bit later, try the Seagull nebula with is also quite large and bright. Interstellar comet Borisov also comes closer for those with more powerful telescopes wanting to snap an image of this mysterious object.
