A fine sketch of this southern object, Markus. It's been a long while since I've observed this target myself; I'm surprised to see the "boxy" collection of stars towards the upper left in your sketch. I've seen at least a half-dozen clusters with similar "star boxes" of six or more stars. Then, I doubt it's anything astrophysical - just our human eyes trying to make sense of stellar pinpoints.
