Observing Log for Mike Durkin


4/23/2021 about 10:00PM-11:30PM
Locust Valley, NY
Transparency: 8/10, Seeing 2/5
Temperature: 45-55 degrees
Equipment: 10x50 binoculars

Visual magnitude measurements of RS Cnc, BO Cnc, ψ1 Aur, Y Lyn and SV Lyn.
While looking for Y Lyn, my iPhone app had open cluster NGC 2281 nearby. I was just barely able to determine it. No stars resolved, but just a barely brighter patch. I probably would not have noticed it without trying to find it.
