The link takes you to the rolandlinda3 gallery that has the sketch.
As so eloquently stated in Psalm 102:25b, the heavens are declared as "the work of your hands". What follows in 26 is more thought provoking: "They will perish, but you will remain." Witnessing star death in a galaxy is a reminder of the temporary nature of the heavens. While beautiful, their place is among created things, which is lower than the place of the creator.

Great colorful sketch especially of NGC 4088. The camera/ 17.5 inch combo make for great sketching equipment. Excellent post.

An excellent observation of a very interesting galaxy in Ursa Major. A supernova was recently discovered in NGC 4088. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
