Haha! Got ya! We don't have any those greeblies over here, but this one in the large Magellanic cloud is certainly impressive! At magnitude 7.3, this is a challenge from my home, but I journeyed to a dark(ish) site and sketched NGC2070 as it rose over the trees shortly before midnight. I've been waiting to observe the 'Tarantula' for awhile, since I don't normally have a southern view. It was well worth the wait......
