The Summer constellations still linger in the west but will retire soon for the winter. The bright stars Deneb, Vega and Altair form the Summer Triangle. Cygnus, the Northern Cross, has, as its bottom end, the beautiful blue/gold double star, Albireo that is visible with a telescope.
More eastward is Pegasus and its Great Square with the Andromeda Galaxy close by. On the eastern horizon is the red star, Aldebaran, an eye of the Bull. Above it is the Pleiades or Seven Sisters, always a favourite.
If possible, observe at a dark location and when the Moon is not bright. A bright Moon will make it more difficult to see the stars and impossible to see clusters, nebulae and galaxies. Only a small telescope at lower magnifications, around 50x, is required to see the objects listed below. The planets and Moon are best observed with a telescope around 100x.

Objects marked with are best with binoculars, or a small telescope, because these objects are large in size.
