Date: 2008 April 11, 01:00 SAST, Friday morning

Location: Sutherland (town, Jurg's guest house)

Sky conditions: Dark, clear

Telescope: 12-inch f/4.9 Dobsonian

Eyepieces: 25mm Sirius Plossl, 60x, 46' fov & 10mm Sirius Plossl, 150x, 14/17' fov

Working on MSA chart 953, star hopping from Omega Centauri.

One of three small galaxies about a degree east of Omega Centauri. A fourth galaxy, ESO 269-80, is not plotted on MSA 953. From west to east these are ESO 269-80, -85, -90.

ESO 269-90 appears as a roughly round, faint, glow, 0.3 arcminutes across. Northwest list a bright star, labelled "A". Due south, very close to it, or involved with it, is a faint (13th mag?) star, as the rough sketch shows.

Field sketch not made, which is a pity, because these galaxies (ESO 269-80, -85, -90) are within 18 arcmin of each other.
