May  : May the 4th be with you! News alert : Comet C/2020 F8 (SWAN) is now clearly visible in the pre-sunrise hour to the east. It’s sporting a large tail and making its way towards the Sun so catch it while you can. It’s filling the frame even in a modest 200mm focal length and may even be naked eye visible for you already.

Not too many other surprises, but Carina is nice and high and full or targets including “Statue of Liberty” nebula, “Gabriela Mistral” nebula and others that typically get outshone by Carina. Omega Centauri is also high around midnight and the biggest, easiest Globular Cluster to photograph. If you’re looking to take a break from Nebulae take a crack at “Leo’s Triplet” (M66) galaxies or “Markarian’s Chain” (M84, M86 etc). Another galaxy, Centaurus A is also quite high in the early evening and ready to image!
