This is a continuing project in describing the deep-sky objects I have observed and have been re-observing over many years. Most of the observations were made in my home in Taytay, Rizal, now a really light-polluted place with shopping malls as neighbors.
This project has the objective of cataloguing the deep-sky objects which can be observed in an urban area in the Philippines. Taytay, Rizal has been relatively more light-polluted than many of the Philippine cities, such as Roxas City and Bacolod City where the astronomer can still find a vacant lot with no street lights overhead and still see the Milky Way during early evening. The Milky Way has vanished in early evening Taytay as soon as the 21st century arrived.
