Deep Sky With Binoculars - Asterisms

This project includes a collection of visual observations of deep sky objects made exclusively with the naked eye or binoculars. It is remarkable how many objects are visible with such small instruments and shows that a telescope is not necessarily required. Of course everyone can contribute with own observations. A detailed description of the project and the submission format of your own observations can be found in the introduction.
