The needle and the cigar

Roel,

Excellent observations of M82 and NGC 4565 (Needle Galaxy). You have noted much detail and they are framed very nicely as well. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

I am not sure what is cliché about them. But they are beautifully done!

Very good sketches, and these two are always a pleasure to do and then go back to do again. Roland
