One of the newest class of objects that I have been introduced to are carbon stars, and they are definitely worth sharing to my fellow stargazers. These are stars that exhibit a distinct orange to deep red hue, caused by an abundance of carbon rather than oxygen in their composition, and their variety in our night sky has surprised me. Cmon, how cool is it to view a star that looks deep red! So if these objects have never been in your eyepiece before, heres this months Audio Tour of the Month which should give you a taste for these interesting objects. Dont forget, email me attheeyepiece@gmail.com if you have the SkySafari app, and Ill forward you the complete SkySafari Observing List so that you can import and follow along, right at the eyepiece of your own telescope.
