M41 – in my observing site this object is very low over the south horizon. However I’ve had really good night and I have made sketch of this object.
Major stars was clearly visible. Other fainter stars was visible like small fog in cluster background.

Clear sky

    Very pretty. Eastern Europe seems to get quite good sky conditions.


  2. Great sketch, and great name for it. It sounds like a rap lyric or something like that.
