I will post my montage about a photo and sketches from the Sky in Crete.
From 2 to 10 April, 2010 we three – all Hungarian amateur astronomers (János Gábor Kernya, Gábor Sánta and me, Gergő Kovács) – were at Crete to enjoy near-south deepsky wonders in Puppis, Vela, Centaurus and Scorpius because these constellations or southern parts of them are never seen from our home. Observed Omega Cen, Cen A, NGC 2451, NGC 2477, NGC 6231 and more in the very clear sky. Light pollution was minimal.
In the image is the Scorpius constellation (with red lines), and in the rings is open star clusters. The clusters is the (in clockwise order) “False Comet” – cluster complex (next to the Scorpius constellation), M7, NGC 6231 and NGC 6242. The “False Comet and M7 is my sketches, the NGC 6231 drew is János Gábor Kernya, and the NGC 6242 is Gábor Sánta’s sketch.
Objects: M7, NGC 6231, NGC 6242.
