Late May gave me a couple nights to chase some galaxies. So 90 and 91 were on my list. The blog post is at the address below my signature. There is religious content in the story.

Roland,
Nice work as always. You sure get some nice detail with the Mallincam. I was out last night with my 72mm and viewed quite a few spring objects.

Very nice work. I think when I get a video setup, I may try my hand at some sketching from a video screen.

Jason, please do sketch with astro video, but do not underestimate the difficulty. Some perceive that it is easy, but the increased detail demands a lot more drawing and concentration than is obvious. I find it is much easier sketching without astro video, but the scene detail is so impressive that it is worth the effort.
