Hey Artists!

My sketch shows two Messier galaxies in the ocularfield, M. 65 and M. 66 in Leo
in the middle distance between Theta and Iota Leonis.
I did not get a trio with the northern galaxy, because of my smaller field in my
f/ 10 telescope. But the pair was beautiful to observe under good atmospheric
In the last years, I can see that the weather and skyconditions gets worse and

What is happening??
More info on my sketch.

Location: Trondheim, Norway.

Clear sky to all. Per-Jonny Bremseth.
