Object: M 90
Location: Texas Star Party
Seeing and Transparency: Seeing is ok, transparency is very bad.
Telescope: Zhumell Z12 12″ Dob
Log: Observed with Tele Vue Ethos 13mm, 115x. It’s a pretty bright, elongated galaxy with a very bright, dense, starlike core. It’s elongated from about 2 o’clock to 8 o’clock in the eyepiece field of view, and it’s probably about three times as long as it is wide. It has a little bit of a boxy appearance, because the ends aren’t all that rounded.
