Here my souvenir of the M3/Leonard rendez-vous, (rendez-vous view from our planet only).

The sky was so-so...

Nice, Michel--I like the different views.  I looked with my 12x36 binoculars and my 120mm refractor about 5 hours after your observations--the separation was a good bit greater.  The sketch is posted over in Uwe's thread.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

 

Here is the final image where you can see the back of my "astro-van", my main mobile telescope and ... myself in the middle of nowhere under a very dark sky.

On the background is the sketch as it was directly made through the 16mm eyepieces.
