    And here are more observations of: M85, M88, M87, M94, M110(+M31+M32)
    Messier 31+32 sketch was number 13 on my list, which was observed under severly light poluted sky. M110 was invisible in that observation. This time limiting magnitude was better but I'm not satisfied with my result. I want to re-sketch it when I get the chance.

    thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)
