Pothier 11 (AST)

DSS
© DSS II (red) - 40×40'
Name: Pothier 11, Jaws
Type: AST
Constellation: Vir
Coordinates: 12h38m50.00s / -11°20'00.00"
Brightness / Size: - / 25.0x25.0'
Southeast of the asterism is Messier 104 (bottom left corner on the DSS image). The shark seems to swim around Messier 104 clockwise.

120mm f/5, 40x, Bortle 7, NELM 5.0, SQM-L 19.1
Hazy sky, 1/3 moon: At 18x the chain of three stars is most obvious, which form the jaws. At 40x also the fainter stars become visible and the Shark is well noticeable. Very nice :-)
