My Deep Sky Observations with the eVscope 2 (Complete List of Observed DSO)

List of Observed Sky Objects | Remarks | References

Since the beginning of December 2021, I own an Unistellar eVscope 2 telescope for observing and taking photos of deep sky objects. On this page, I collect all the sky objects that I visited with the eVscope 2 (from all samples that I owned and still own; third and "final" sample received in August 2022). This page is therefore permanently "under construction."

The linked object numbers lead to the detail pages for the respective objects; these typically contain at least one photo from each observation sesssion as well as further information about the object.

 

List of Observed Sky Objects

Object details can be obtained using the links to the relevant deep sky objects. Smaller sky objects that are also included in photos are usually not listed on their own.

DSO Details

M 1 Crab Nebula Taurus GE More distinct with longer exposure times...
M 2   Aquarius GC Nice globular cluster, one of the larger ones
M 11 Wild Duck Cluster Scutum OC Is located in the Scutum cloud, a special section of the Milky Way; therefore the photos are full of stars.
M 13 Hercules Cluster Hercules GC Nice globular cluster, one of the largest ones, larger than M 5
M 15   Pegasus GC Supposedly, this is the best globular cluster in autumn, bright core.
M 16 Eagle Nebula Serpens GN Star cluster M 16 embedded in the Eagle Nebula IC 4703
M 17 Omega/Swan Nebula Sagittarius GN One of the most beautiful emission nebulae; in the reversing telescope, some observers recognize a swan...
M 27 Dumbbell Nebula Vulpecula PN Nice
M 30   Capricornus GC Observation disturbed...
M 31 Andromeda Galaxy Andromeda G Together with M 32; M 31 too large for the eVscope 2's field of view
M 33 Triangulum Galaxy Triangulum G Very faint, details recognizable only after longer duration in EV mode.
M 35   Gemini OC Large and nice open star cluster
M 36   Auriga OC Nice open star cluster, smaller than M 35
M 37   Auriga OC Nice, very dense open star cluster

  Sagitta GC According to Stoyan, an unusually loose globular star cluster
M 74   Pisces G Nice spiral galaxy, but in the eVscope 2 just a faint dot/glow...
M 76 Small Dumbbell Nebula Perseus PN Small, colorful, rectangular
M 77   Cetus G Spiral galaxy, a bit more to see than with M 74, but in the end just a soft dot in the eVscope 2
M 78   Orion GE Faint, but identifiable using two stars
M 95   Leo G Small barred spiral galaxy, relatively faint, but the bar is visible. Forms a pair with M 96, but almost too far away for the eVscope 2 (40'). But managed to get both on one photo!
M 96   Leo G Spiral galaxy, forms a pair with M 95, but almost too far away for the eVscope 2 (40'). But managed to get both on one photo!
M 97 Owl Nebula Leo G Small green dot with two dark spots
M 101 Pinwheel Galaxy Ursa Major G Spiral galaxy, seen face-on, similar to M 99 and M 100, but much larger than both; quite impressive in the eVscope 2
M 103   Cassiopeia

OC

Open star cluster with many fine stars; the bright stars form a triangle.
M 105   Leo G Bright elliptical galaxy; can be seen together with the galaxies NGC 3384 (elliptical) and the smaller NGC 3389 (spiral) in the same field of view in the eVscope 2.
B 33 Horse Head Nebula Perseus DN Always a challenge; more details after 10 minutes of exposure
IC 405 Flaming Star Nebula Orion GN Faint red nebula; not easy for the eVscope 2
IC 1396 Elephant Trunk Cepheus GNE Becomes visible after long exposure times
IC 1805 Heart Nebula Cassiopeia GN/OS The galactic nebulae IC 1805, IC 1848, and IC 1795 (also named NGC 896) form a larger nebulosity region in the constellation Cassiopeia, not far away from the Perseus Double Cluster NGC 869/884.
IC 1848 Soul Nebula Cassiopeia GN/OS The galactic nebulae IC 1848, IC 1805, and IC 1795 (also named NGC 896) form a larger nebulosity region in the constellation Cassiopeia, not far away from the Perseus Double Cluster NGC 869/884.
IC 5070 Pelican Nebula Cygnus GNE Large reddish nebula
IC 5146 Cocoon Nebula Cygnus GNE Small reddish nebula with embedded open star cluster Cr 470
NGC 281 Pacman Nebula Cassiopeia GE Reddish nebula, fits the eVscope 2's FOV
NGC 457 Owl/E.T. Cluster Cassiopeia OC Nice, particularly the eyes; somewhat hazy during the observation
NGC 404 Mirach's Ghost Andromeda G Galaxy close to Mirach, therefore called Mirach's Ghost
NGC 663   Cassiopeia OC Large
NGC 752   Andromeda   Large open star cluster
NGC 869 h Persei, part of the Perseus Double Cluster Perseus OC Both clusters together are too large for the eVscope 2's field of view; the more compact cluster of the two
NGC 884 chi Persei, part of the Perseus Double Cluster Perseus OC Both clusters together are too large for the eVscope 2's field of view; for me, this is the nicer cluster
NGC 891   Andromeda G Seen from the side; nice
NGC 1499 California Nebula Perseus GN Nothing or little to see... Faint and probably too large for the eVscope 2...
NGC 1977 Running Man Nebula Orion GR The Running Man Nebula includes the reflection nebulae NGC 1977, 1973, and 1975 as well as the open star cluster 1981; a dark nebula has the shape of a running man; needs long times in Enhanced Vision mode

NGC 4461 with NGC 4458 Virgo G The galaxies NGC 4461 (lenticular) und NGC 4458 (elliptical) in constellation Virgo are members of Markarian's chain and interact with one another. If the galaxies are moved towards the top left of the field of view, you can also see the lenticular galaxies NGC 4438 and NGC 4435 (The Eyes) in the same field of view with the eVscope 2.
