M101, M104, and NGC 4565
Posted 06 June 2013 - 11:45 AM
I used my 12 inch F5 dob for these sketches. I sketched other targets too but these were my favorites of that night.
I primarily used a Nagler 26 t5, 13 ethos, and 9 nagler t6.
Observing from this spot is spoiling me rotten.
M104 I am not sure if I like how this one turned out. It looked much better through the 13 ethos and 9 nag.
NGC 4565 I think this one turned out the best. It helps that it is a fairly bright object too.

Just an idea: you can change the sketch in black/white by using PS. BTW fine sketches!
The blue isn't on purpose.

How do you cope with dark adaption sketching at the eyepiece under such dark skies?

You have three very fine galaxy sketches here.

I'm thinking Im going to need to drive as far for equally good sky's. though I think 2 hours gets me a black zone or close to it.
Again very nice work!

The 12 easily beat the view at the dark site versus the 16 in a red zone. No surprise here.
