Demelza,

I love the detail of the whale galaxy and think you have captured not only the shape but the mottling of the core. Very accurate and nicely done.

Very nice sketch. I've never observed this on myself, but it looks very interesting. I often plan to look for this one, and end up forgetting, maybe I'll stick a post-it in my atlas...

Excellent sketch, Demelza!

The Whale is a real pleaser, especially for us southern-sky-challenged 54°N denizens.

Cheers,

An excellent observation of NGC 3641. You have captured the Whale Galaxy very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
