Session notes:

The second night of astronomical observations with my 10" Dob and a friend's 14" home made Dob at Cabana Curmaturi. We compared objects all night, switched eyepieces, looked at known objects and new ones also.

The IC 3568 planetary nebula in Camelopardalis was a nice surprise for me. Good dark skies and ok seeing for planets also. Also a good warm up for the next nights.
