Last night I had a short observing session that lasted only about 2h. Temperatures were below freezing, -3°C, enough to get cold fingers after hour and half.
I was surprised by the richness of this galaxy cluster. Since SQM measured only 21.15 I believe that it is possible to catch few more galaxies under truly dark skies.
Due to the freezing temperatures and numb fingers, this sketch was made rather in short time so things like star placement was done rather crudely.
