1 BYU Astronomical Society Observation Log Book The earth rolls upon her wings, and the sun giveth his light by day, and the moon giveth her light by night, and the stars also give their light, as they roll upon their wings in their glory, in the midst of the power of God. Unto what shall I liken these kingdoms, that ye may understand? Behold, all these are kingdoms, and any man who hath seen any or the least of these hath seen God moving in his majesty and power. Doctrine and Covenants 88:45-47 iii

5 BYU Astronomical Society Observation Log Book Introduction The NightLog is a combination of two elements designed for the amateur astronomer: an observation program, and a log book. Brigham Young University Astronomical Society NightLog was originally produced for the Brigham Young University Astronomical Society. Members of the society are entitled to a free copy and are encouraged to actively pursue each level of the observation program. Use of this log book is optional, but to qualify for club awards you must keep a record of your observations in some form. Log Book The NightLog Observation Log Book is intended to assist you in keeping a detailed record of your observations. Keeping an observation log structures your observing sessions and provides a personal record of your activities. In Volume I you will find entries for all of the Messier, bright solar system, and select NGC objects. Many of the best double stars, variable stars, and other miscellaneous objects are also included in this volume. Volume II contains entries for the Herschel 400. Observation Program The observation program is intended to help newcomers to the hobby of astronomy become experienced amateur astronomers. It is designed to be accessible using telescopes within an amateur s capabilities. By working to individually observe and record observations of celestial objects, you will learn to love and appreciate the night sky as well as become able to teach others about astronomy. Completing each level will bring a sense of accomplishment and increase your enjoyment of astronomy. The program consists of five levels. The first three levels explore the easiest and brightest objects in the night sky - mostly comprising the Messier list. The last two levels require observations of the most difficult objects within amateur astronomers capabilities. Volume I contains the logs accompanying the Beginner through levels. Volume II encompasses the Elite level. Observation Program Details To complete each program, observe the required objects for that level. It is recommended that you keep a detailed log to successfully complete each level. For a more enjoyable experience do not use the go-to functions of some telescopes. Sketch, photograph, or write a detailed description of each object. In addition to your sketch, photograph, or description, it is helpful to include: Your location Date and time of observation Model of telescope/binoculars used Magnifications used Seeing conditions (scale from 1-5) Astronomical transparency (scale from 1-7) o See pp. ix for additional information on these scales vii

6 Observation Program Levels Beginner 6 objects Observe any six objects. Refer to the Beginner list for suggestions on what to observe. The Beginner list includes the best and easiest to locate objects in the night sky. Learning to find and observe these objects will familiarize you with your equipment and the night sky. Basic 30 objects Choose any thirty objects from the basic or beginner lists to observe. Objects in the basic level will give you a taste of what the deep sky has to offer. These include well-known galaxies, the best nebulae, and the brightest globular and open clusters. ~90 objects By completing the intermediate program you will have observed all of the objects on the Messier list, plus some. By now you should know the night sky better than the back of your hand! 101 objects Taken from sci.astro.amateur s list of the 200 best non-messier objects, the purpose of the advanced program is to take you beyond Messier. The SAA 200 list is crossreferenced with the Herschel 400 with duplicate items removed. Subsequent removal of all objects below -40 declination comprises this list. Elite 400+ objects The elite program consists of two goals: complete the Herschel 400 and photograph at least three very dim solar system objects such as Neptune (dim planet), Pluto (dwarf planet), Ceres (asteroid), Deimos (dim moon), or a comet.

High powers produce fidgety planets. 4 - Excellent seeing: Medium-powers are crisp and stable. High-powers are good, but a little soft. 5 - Superb seeing: Any power eyepiece produces a good crisp image. Astronomical Transparency Scale 0 - Completely cloudy or precipitating. 1 - Very Poor - Mostly Cloudy. 2 - Poor - Partly cloudy or heavy haze. 1 or 2 Little Dipper stars visible. 3 - Somewhat Clear - Cirrus or moderate haze. 3 or 4 Little Dipper stars visible. 4 - Partly Clear - Slight haze. 4 or 5 Little Dipper stars visible. 5 - Clear - No clouds. Milky Way visible with averted vision. 6 Little Dipper stars visible. 6 - Very Clear - Milky Way and M31 visible. 7 Little Dipper stars visible. 7 - Extremely Clear - M33 and/or M81 visible.
