Transparency's been exceptionally good over the last two days so it's time for some "big boys" deep-sky. From this particular cluster I could identify 5 galaxies with obviously NGC7768 in its centre (mag. 12,3). Well, not bad I'd say...

Peter,

Very nice, that's getting to the limit of the sky conditions in fine fashion. Impressive sketch.

And this is over 300 million light years I believe. Thank you for sharing your beautiful sketch. This is beyond ( no pun intended ) me given my scope and skies.

It is always amazing when we can see such distant objects. We can say the number, but who can really get their minds around such distances...or expanses of time. That's one of the reasons I am hooked on amateur astronomy. Thanks again for translating what your eyes saw into such an amazing sketch. If I had ready access to dark skies I would definitely come down with aperture fever!
