Manuel,

Stunning and well done, very realistic compared to the view in the eyepiece. I like the format you used.

Hmm. I have no idea why the image does not show up. I attempted to edit Manuel's post and the image shows up in the preview, but not on the message board.

You can view the M51 image here.

So I see. It worked for a little while (and it was a very nice sketch) - there must be some issue with the host site.
