User Name Remember Me? Dalestronomy Dale. What are some deep-sky objects I can see from Australia? Hi all, Have had my mm scope since May and have seen several planets and of course the moon, as well as attempting to photograph them. I was wondering what deep-sky objects I would be able to look at. I've had a look at several stars, some interesting, some not so much.
