Welcome to the sketching forum! It looks very good, I wish my first sketch looked this good. I hope you keep sketching and posting them here, I don't think there's many large scopes in this part of the forum.

This is a very good sketch of one of my personal favorites when it comes to galaxies. Moreover, a good demonstration of why aperture rules when it comes to galaxies too.

Very nice! (Is it a digital sketch?)

Goodness, a 20" scope under SQM 21.7 skies -- sounds like heaven.

Cheers,

Manuel,

Welcome to the Cloudy Nights Sketching Forum. This is an outstanding first sketch of a somewhat difficult object to render (M104, the Sombrero Galaxy). The galaxy's nucleus, dust disk, and central bulge is well rendered in your observation. I look forward to your future observations on this forum.

Carlos

Manuel,

This is one fine sketch of M-104.:waytogo: It is well placed at nightfall for observation right now. You have captured all its stunning features very well with that large scope. Yes and welcome to the sketching forum.

Frank :)
