I contented myself with some low power exploring of the hidden gems in and around Carina.
The reversal was also a slow affair, with the shadow touching the limb at 22.18 and finally exiting at 22.29. (Note, I amended my previous post, as I made a typo re the time)

I used my Vixen 115mm and a 7mm Delite EP (127x).

Steve, Carina certainly is a lovely area, where the more U look, the more U find!
