Dear observers,

 

my friend Robert pointed me at the galaxy NGC 2681 at the border Cancer / Lynx. I looked at it wit my 4 inch refractor. It was visible with 33x, best with 37x and nearly invisible with 53x. I saw most of its written size. Enjoy.

Very nice. I did see it myself with a 4" refractor - 10 years ago!
