Some of our favorite deep-sky objects are well placed in March for observation. Check out bright nebula M42 (The Great Orion Nebula), visible as the middle "star" of Orion's "sword" just south of the three recognizable stars of Orion's belt. Take a look at M81 (Bode's Galaxy) and M82 (Cigar Galaxy) just above the Big Dipper asterism. Then turn your view to the east of bright star Regulus to observe the Leo Triplet of galaxies M65, M66, and NGC 3628. In the northeastern sky, you'll find one of the most beautiful spiral galaxies in the universe, the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51).
While the some of these objects can be seen with modest 50mm binoculars, using a 10" or 12" telescope in a location with dark skies will display beautiful detail of these distant treasures. So pack up your observation gear, head to your favorite location and enjoy the views of these deep-sky gems.
