This evening I had the pleasure observing Mt. Gruithuisen gamma and delta and some surroundings. The air was not very stable so my 8 cm Apo was sufficient. I used a magnification of 120x. The image is mirror reversed.

Uwe,

Nice capture on these domes. They make great sketching targets in just the right light.
Always a pleasure to see your sketches.
