M-101 article by Howard Banich in S&T new
      #5824290 - 04/26/13 12:26 PM

Just giving a shout out to Howard and his excellent article teasing every bit of detail of a bright object. He wrote a similar article on M-51 several years ago in Sky and Tel.

Just received the magazine and have little doubt this will be the highlight of the issue for me. I have been preparing to re-observe both M51 and M101 soon to tease out more detail.

Thanks for the shout out Alvin! I'm thrilled by how the article came out and hope everyone enjoys it. By the way, my editor was Tony Flanders and much of our discussions as the article progressed are nicely captured in the on-line supplement (at skypub.com/m101) that detail how we arrived at the A through H designations for the non-NGC HII regions and star clusters.

Great job Howard.
This is definitely an article that will find its way into a sheet protector and added to the observing resource binder.
Write us another one!!!!

I read the piece, it was superb! Now we need to get you a 40", or so, scope, Howard.

Thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed the article - and I'm always ready for a 40 inch class scope!

Excellent article. I've yet to compare the sketches to some of my images of M101.

I looked at M101 the other night, with my 10". I forgot to bring my S&T with me, but I gained new appreciation for the possibilities this object presents. If the transparency were better, and I had brought my magazine, I'd have seen how many "easy" features were within reach of my scope.

Thank you all again! I've been working on M42 the past two winters but it will take a while to complete my drawing mostly because of the terrible weather in the Pacific Northwest that time of year. However, I do have a bunch of other drawings much closer to completion, and I'll probably finish them all before M42 is ready for a write up. Stay tuned...
