Got out last night while the going was good. Light pollution and moonlight made seeing a little challenging so I looked for a few new bright things. Cancer was completley invisible so I used binos to find it and look at M67 for the first time. Also looked at several other things for the first time. The Eskimo planetary (small but bright), The triple star B Monoceros (separation 7 and 5 arc seconds) and the double star Algieba in Leo. Back on Feb 7, I looked at a very beautiful double (Almach in Andromeda) that looks like the Albireo double but closer together (10"). The colours are orange and blue/green. Nothing exotic I know, but it's still nice to find and see things for the first time. Also had a nice view of saturn even though it was low in the sky. the shadow of the ring across the face of the planet was easy to see and 3 moons.
