This sketch looks great. I searched for this galaxy many years ago and never located it. Maybe it's time to try again. Very nice !

Great sketch of the asterims and I had to take a second look for the galaxy and it really stood out. Now if I could get the skies to clear here I'd take a look for it. Did you try for NGC 6905 the Blue Flash Planetary?

There is also French 2 (HD 88063-Group) in Hydra and French 3 (=Czernik 40?) in Vulpecula.

An excellent observation of an interesting asterism and faint galaxy. Sue French's discovery is an interesting one and it does have the appearance of a "toadstool." Thank you for sharing it with us all.
