Went out observing tonight, looking around Sagittarius. After focusing on Venus, I slid up to Sagittarius to see what I could find. I managed to find two open clusters, NGC 6520, and M25. I sketched M25 and have to say am happy with the result. I am still having trouble with the slow-mo controls on my mount though :(.
