Before the full moon got too high I wanted to get a little observing in. It had been a very rainy week. I started up the scope at 8:37 and synced up on Arcturus using the 5mm reticle. I then switched to the Nagler 17mm and slewed to M13. While not centered it was in the field of view. Using adverted vision I saw many pinpoint stars. Because I wanted to stay on the same side of the meridian I then targeted M92. It’s smaller then M13 but gives a nice view. The moon was getting higher so I thought I would get in one more Messier. I chose M14 which I had never tried before. Luckily it was in the FOV but was very faint.
I was very pleased to get 3 targets in 3 attempts. Using the LXD75 mount you never know what you end of with.
