****** ENG: easy shot of M2, waiting for the primary target (NGC 891) to gain some height above the horizon. Unplanned shot, but not a bad result. 2018 Star party.

****** ITA: semplice ripresa di M2, mentre aspettavo che il soggetto principale della nottata (NGC 891) si alzasse un po'. Star party 2018. Il risultato non mi sembra malaccio.
