These last couple of nights I've been unstoppable! Here's my latest work: the lovely fireworks galaxy. The first thing that struck me was this "eye" in its centre, as if the nucleus is surrounded by dark dust, making it look like a pupil. I could only see two of the spiral arms and for the rest some faint nebulosity under the nucleus. So not a lot of details, but then again this galaxy is rather faint.

Thank you so much Jef, Frank, André, Michel and Tamás! Very much appreciated!

Since I've started doing courses on deep-sky sketching, I'm not going to reveal everything here. But if you browse my posts, you'll see that I already gave away a lot of my little secrets...

Cheers,

Peter
