Finder Charts for November
Ideally, you should use a red-tinted flashlight to illuminate your finder charts. This will help preserve your night vision. You can make one by unscrewing the front of your flashlight and inserting some red plastic or red cellophane beneath the lens. Replace the front of the flashlight and you're ready to go. When using the binocular finder charts, remember that the smallest stars on the finder charts will be barely detectable in binoculars - only the stars shown larger will be obvious.
