Wonderful sketch Stefano. There's a nice 3D effect in it.

I loved Campo Felice, was there about 10 years ago. Beats most of the north for decent locations, except maybe Bolzano.

Stefano,

Wonderful capture of M-17, it really does look like a swan under the right conditions with the correct telescope and filter.

Thanks to everyone for the appreciation!

@mitaccio Campo Felice has gotten worse in recent years, though it remains a beautiful place.
