T Lyrae

Last night was good... although the seeing was too bad for double stars, the transparency was perfect. Observed some globulars (M5, M10, M12, M13) and some beautiful carbon stars. T Lyrae was a gem as always. Here's a sketch of T Lyrae I made a few years ago with a 4 inch refractor, also from my backyard.

Tal 100 mm refractor f/10, Panoptic 35mm, magn. 28x. North is up, West is to the left.
