A few galaxies in Triangulum and Cetus new
      #5383184 - 08/23/12 05:10 PM Attachment (65 downloads)

Hello all,

These are sketches of some galaxies in Triangulum and Cetus:
Cr1 open cluster and a pair of spirals nearby: NGC 672 and IC 1727. Another faint spiral: NGC 925. And the elusive Wolf Lundmark Melotte irregular dwarf galaxy.
Drawings were made with a graphite pencil on a white paper, and inverted in Photoshop. I observed with a 10" Skywatcher Newtonian, at Negev desert in Israel (~ 6.7 NELM)

original drawings can be found here, here and here

Michael.

Man your sketches are real and nice. It's exactly as they look in my C14 and really I feel like looking in your scope. Very very beautiful sketches. You are talented. I like looking at your website for all your work. Congrats my friend. As a visual observer, your sketches are more valuable than any picture to me. I like all the beautiful pictures here, but sketches reprensent the real thing to my eyes.

Andre.

Thanks =)

By the way, Andrev, I think in your 14" under dark skies you can resolve the spiral arms of NGC 925. I could barely see hints of them.

Michael.

I really don't know, I never tried this one. Next I'll go, if still available, I'll try it. Looks a nice one.

Andre.

Hi Michael!

those widefield sketches are really something! I like them as they represent what can really be seen with the eyes. I must congratulate you also for lying down all those stars around the galaxies.

Jean

Great sketches, Michael!

I see a huge amount of work for the Cr21.

Influencing your WLM (PGC 143) sketch I am going to observe it tonight (had no idea about the object before).

Thank you and best regards.

Ernest

Thanks again.

I had no idea about the WLM either - a friend asked me to show it. It's quite a challenging, low contrast object.
