Having last year discovered that I could see parts of the zenith region of the sky at Fairvale Observatory (North), in particular Ursa Major and adjacent constellations for short periods during the spring galaxy season, it was an obvious location to return to this year.  Furthermore, a protracted period of good weather for most of 12-days coinciding with a New Moon provided an unprecedented opportunity to obtain long integration times on a number of smaller galaxies that abound there.
