25-Nov-2000: Night 20:30 - 22:00, Tai Mo Shan

Tonight I went observing with two of my friends with my 10x50 binoculars. We brought just too little stuff, only a single binoculars with a planisphere. So, our targets were limited to those printed on the planisphere. We observed the M42, the double cluster and the M45. This was the first time we found the double cluster. We didn't know what it was, but we later checked that when we back home. It's simply amazing. We also looked at the Jupiter and its satellite, and also the Saturn. Nothing special about the Saturn but we could see Jupiter as a small disc hanging in the dark sky.
