Enif and Picot 2
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

On Octobre the 27th between 20:30 and 21:30 I observed the bright orange star Enif in Pegasus. I used the 80mm Zeiss with a 20-60 zoom eyepiece, mounted on a Manfrotto-tripod. At maximum zoom (60x) Enif nicely fitted into the same field of view with the asterism Picot 2 (in the upper half of the sketch), which looks like a cooking pan with a lid on it. The sketch was made from my backyard in Landgraaf. The faintest star is of magnitude 10.95, not bad for an 80mm scope.

North is up and East is to the left.
