A Memory Worth Repeating new
      #4219758 - 11/30/10 07:38 PM

I thought of a time in December 2007 when my wife and I sketched NGC 891 together. We were pretty new at sketching then but had a wonderful time tackling this beauty. So the top post on the blog (address below my signature) has the sketch with just a wee story of the evening. Observing together does not happen enough, but when it does, the object we observe gets remembered far past the sketch time.

Roland,

Those captures of NGC 891 are truly wonderful! Love the detail you captured in the dust lanes and the bright inner core region. Well done and well written. Thank you for sharing as always.

Roland and Linda,

Nice words and 2 great sketches.
It's hard to believe 5 years have passed since you registered at CN at the beginning of 2006.

Frank
