Following the previous post using EAA technique, here is M100 in the Coma, a beautiful spiral galaxy.

 

Details of the spiral arms. Mag: 9.3. There are two weak satellite galaxies, one at the bottom right of the drawing: NGC4328 (Mag: 14.04) and the other at the bottom left: NGC4322 (Mag: 14.81).

 

Drawing made from a single 1.5 sec exposure taken with SiOnyx Aurora night vision camera behind a 16" Dobson on May 31, 2019. Very good viewing conditions, white Canson, HB and 2B pencils, photoshop inversion.

 

Regards,

Francis
