Hello togehter,

 

despite a lot of work in the job (despite Corona), even more than usual, I spent the 3rd night in a row in the observatory. Yesterday I was just too tired to sketch, today I have
but can fight the inner "piggy dog" simply from the fact that the wind was gone. So a sketch of M81 / 82 was created and - it was always in the field of vision - NGC 2976.

The night was a bit "worse", the complaining is at a high level, yesterday was the highlight of the good weather period here in germany ...

 

The picture is reversed (south above), because I captured the scenery with the great Swarovski EL 12x50 on the sky mirror. The "lighting duration" of my retinas
was 1 hour, 4 minutes ... stays healthy and clear skies, Jens

The sight of this famous duo is mesmerizing through a good pair of binoculars and you certainly did it justice with this beautiful sketch.
