Those Luginbuhl & Skiff guys observed the field visually about 30 years ago, and you can see Chris L's drawing on page 242 of their book --- made with the 24-inch Cassegrainian that at the time was at USNO-Flagstaff. The little galaxy on the lower-right end of NGC 2820 in your photo is IC 2458. \Brian -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
