I was up early this morning to do some galaxy hunting before work.  Here is a sketch of the galaxy NGC 1421 in Eridanus.  Love those faint fuzzies!  It was sure a cold morning here.  Had my deep winter observing gear on.  But looking forward to the coming season of darkness!

Yea, faint fuzzies are fun but difficult. Not so difficult to sketch, but to make something of them. (LOL) You did well for a faint galaxy. I'm looking forward to our dry season, too. Happy hunting!
