Centaurus A

8" Dob, 184x

Northern hemisphere appeared fainter and smaller than its southern counter part, and somewhat uneven in brightness where it appeared to be brighter adjacent the NW boundary of the dark lane. A mag 12 star was seen superimposed at the NW end of the lane with some surrounding haze within the rift itself. A star is located 'within' the south hemisphere and a very faint star was seen at the SW boundary of the rift.
