I like browsing the heavens in search for the "unbeaten path"; objects which are often neglected but still have so much to offer. One of these is undoubtedly this lovely galaxy in DRA. With a magnitude of just over 10 it is within reach of most telescopes and I was impressed by the amount of detail it offered. The core's bright and more or less rectangular, with the right 2/3 clearly brighter than the left 1/3. Under the core there was absolute nothing, as if a dark dust lane blocked the light there. Above it, the brightness of the core faded into the background. To the left and right there were two clear spiral arms visible like crescent moon disks and indeed separated from the core. Yes... loved it!

Wow, so real and natural. Beautiful Peter, you really master the night sketch with the feeling to be at your eyepiece.

Andre.

Great work! A fine subtile balance between the faintness of the object and still good visible on my computerscreen.
