Manage episode 282828034 series 49427
Hosted by Chris Beckett & Shane Ludtke, two amateur astronomers in Saskatchewan. The lads discuss (for a change) the dim, distant, deep sky targets in 3 wintertime constellations. The Orion Nebula, M42, is one of the brightest targets in the entire sky. M45, the Pleiades is the largest, brightest open cluster in the sky and a fine binocular target. And last but definitely not least is the Perseus Double Cluster, one of the most beautiful clusters in the galaxy.
