NGC 5248 Bootes with EAA

With mag 10.1 this barred spiral galaxy lies between Bootes and Virgo. His arms with HII zones stand out in VA.

Observation of May 31, 2019 in VA with SiOnyx Aurora, good conditions of seeing and transparency. Drawing on white Canson with pencils 2H, HB and 2B. Inversion and recovery of stars under photoshop.

 

Clear sky,

 

Francis

Francis,

 

An incredible sketch. I love this galaxy, it is very grateful and it shows a lot in small scopes.

 

Roberto.
