Hello again!

This is a sketch of a neighboring field to the sketch of Markarian's Chain I uploaded a moment ago. You can see M87 to the lower right. It's observed on the same nights with the same equipment. Again, lots of galaxies visible, although many of the small ones weren't so easy as they appear in the drawing.



The image is shown correctly oriented.

I have several more sketches to upload, but I must go outside now and do some garden work and get some sunlight.


Clear skies!
Thomas, Denmark

Thomas,

An excellent wide field observation of M87/M89/M90. You have captured the view of these three objects very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Thanks, everyone!

@mak17: I used a WO 72mm f/6 Megrez apo with binoviewer and magnifications between 21x and 53x, as well as single eyepieces and 2x barlow for 42x, 67x and 84x.


Clear skies!
