Welcome to the Mobile Loughton List Page. This page provides access to tools to help you observe Loughton List objects.
The "Loughton List" is a list of our favourite celestial objects that do not require expensive equipment and ultra-dark skies to observe. Many are visible in binoculars.
There are three categories of LL object :
"Bronze" objects are easy to find, easy to see and do not need expensive equipment.
"Silver" objects provide just a little more challenge but should be within most peoples grasp.
"Gold" objects need a bit more patience and a reasonable telescope.
