Demelza

A great first sketch of Andromeda and your documentation with descriptions in text is excellent. :bow: :bow: :bow:
I see you recorded it in Dutch but that you observed from France.

I saw your intro in your website. A great story as to how you discovered deep sky observing. Keep up the good work!

Thanks!

I live in the Netherlands, but was in France last week. The sky is much darker in the south than it is in our country.
