The Milky Way Region M24
Die offener Sternhaufen M24 or Sagittarius Star Cloud The Milky Way Region is in the constellation Sagittarius (Sgr).
Equatorial coordinates (epoch J2000):
Optimum magnification for a telescope with observations of M24, depending on the aperture of the telescope (D), is about 10x-20x. Higher magnifications of course add details, but lead to a strong drop in the brightness of the image, making it difficult to observe.
The best month for observing M24 is July. At this time, the object is at midnight near its highest point in the sky, that is, it is less affected by light from the lanterns and atmospheric distortions.
For observers in the northern latitudes:The nights in July are still quite light, so it makes sense to try to observe M24 also in August.
