Thanks for those kind words Ron. I always look up the objects I observe. There is so much information available on line and the images help me to check on the accuracy or otherwise of what I have seen. This is particularly the case when there are galaxy groups and clusters. It is very easy to misidentify something. I have deleted one galaxy from the report that I thought was 3557, but the photos of that area didn't support my notes.

This checking process also reveals things that I can observe later. For example, I had no idea that there was a red nebula around Lambda Centauri. It may not be something that I can pick up visually, but I'll try. You may have more luck with your 16" and dark skies.

Cheers, Paul.
