Because I have enough to observe with my comets I rarely observe and even rarer sketch deep sky objects. Yesterday I had only one comet at my list and observed NGC 4565 afterwards. I used a 12 inch Dobsonian at 144x.

Great sketch Uwe. 4565 is a galaxy, like M 104, that begs the observer to try different power eyepieces to bring out more details.

Amazing observation, plenty of details captured. Makes me wonder, why did I observe this galaxy 5 long years ago... :)
