When we think of observing near the winter Milky Way, what usually comes to mind is a myriad of splashy star clusters and bright nebulae. The average observer doesn't associate this part of the sky with galaxy hunting, yet even near the Milky Way's star clouds you can find many fine examples.
Based on the Littrow spectrograph design, the Spectra-L200 allows users with modest telescopes to produce the high-resolution spectra needed to explore the structure and chemical makeup of stars and bright nebulae, or to see the redshift of distant quasars.
That's why the bright nebulae of the Sagittarius-Carina arm such as M16 and M17 stretch only to longitude 17[degrees] in this direction, whereas the Eta Carinae Nebula, also in the Sagittarius-Carina arm, lies 72[degrees] on the opposite side of the galactic center, at longitude 288[degrees].
These marvels include the big open star clusters M6 and M7, near the stinger of Scorpius; the Great Sagittarius Star Cloud, above the spout of the Sagittarius Teapot; and the bright nebulae M8 and M20 (the Lagoon and Trifid) above that.
Although Herschel grouped his objects into "Bright Nebulae," "Faint Nebulae," "Very Compressed and Rich Clusters of Stars," and so on, Collinder used actual clusters for three of his classifications: "Pleiades," "Praesepe" (M44 in Cancer), and "Mu Normae" (NGC 6169).
