Hi, 

 

This is a sketch of the Spindle galaxy I made two years ago, from my light polluted place. 

I have not observed it ever since, but I should try it from a dark site and compare.

 

HB pencil, stump, White cartridge paper, slightly processed with GIMP 2.10  

 

Clear skies, 

Miguel

Miguel,

 

I like this sketch. Edge on galaxies are fun to track down and sketch. Thanks for posting.

 

Frank :)

No doubt a very beautiful galaxy the sketch is very appropriate to what is observed after the eyepiece.
