Very nice sketch!  Now only if those pesky clouds would go away so I could do some spring galaxy hunting of my own. :grin:

Clouds + full moon have made observing difficult here in NM as well.

 

Clear skies,

My god, stunning visual results with a 18" of aperture, that's quite a view with 8 galaxies in 1 degree. Amazing, I should get one of those large telescope one day.
