Hi all!

A beautiful pair: the Bodes's galaxies in UMa

 

 

March 14 live  observation with help of EAA with SiOnyx Aurora on afocal setup on a 16" Dobsonian, Celestron 25mm eyepiece, good conditions of seeing and transparency. Drawing on black Canson paper with dry and wax pastel pencils. Size of the original drawing: 30x42 cm

 

Clear sky,

Francis

Gosh, your M82 looks so much nice than mine. Similar, but so much better resolved. Well done.

Really outstanding! I observed and sketched them last night, but with very low magnifaction (48x) at my 5 inch starfire apo with binokular and two Televue DeLite 18,2 mm oculars on black Canyon paper and Faber Castell Pitt Pastel pencil. Thanks for sharing and clear skies Jens
