On our site (address under signature) we have started a series called "The Heavens and the Prophets". The first part is posted and begins with a sketch/observation of NGC 4565. It is my second time sketching this beauty, and it was just as much fun and exciting as the first time I did it. If interested, go to News to see it hot linked or to the Inspiration Sketches and Stories page to see it summarized and hot linked.

Roland,

A beautiful and spectacular observation of NGC 4565. This has to be one of the finest edge-on galaxies to observe. A testament to the beauty of the universe. My best to you and Linda.

Carlos

Thank you Frank and Carlos. It is one of those objects that is hard not to go back to. I will post the next two objects together in a couple days.
