Very nice edge-on. Could barely discern the dust lane. I sketched the dust
lane not remembering one was supposed to be there (it's nice when
observations of that type are trusted and rewarded). Dew was starting to win
over the shield and I had no dryer so its brightness way probably
considerably lessened. Will have to have another look.
