M104 and more from last night..

It sure feels good to get the pencils out again. Last night I spent time at our club's dark sky site and I got to do some sketching. The first object is something a fellow club member calls the Porch Light. NGC 2362 in Canis Major.

Details:
12.5mm Ortho, 16" F/4.5, 144x.

It has been over 3 years or more since I last sketched and it sure was nice. I still have a way to go to get it to look better (and doing some better post processing). This was my new scope's maiden voyage at a dark sky site and it sure delivered some nice images to me!

Can't wait to go out again.

Jason,

Fantastic sketches! You've captured the subtle details in these different galaxies very well, and they are a pleasure to view. Thanks for sharing these. I've been wanting to sketch galaxies for a month now, but it seems that the new moon period in March and now April here has coincided with plenty of cloud cover!

Jason,

It is clearly evident that you have been sketching for some time. This is a most impressive collection of galaxy sketches. I am looking forward to seeing more of your works.

Jason,

Great sketching of some wonderful galaxies. Your detail work I think is well done on these objects. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Terrific sketches! For someone who hadn't sketched in three years, your skills came back remarkably fast.

Jason,

An excellent assortment of observations of an open cluster/planetary nebula and galaxies. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Carlos
