Ngc 1569 is an irregular galaxy in Camelopardalis  ; magnitude:11.01 ; size:3.9'x2.2' ; fairly bright and elongated in shape.  This galaxy is almost comet-like, being a bit broader on one side..I observed some mottling towards the center. I used a 6mm Ethos at 264x with my 14.5  Starstructure Dob  f/4.3

I always look forward to whatever your next sketch is Raul.Your target list is right up my alley of interest and this is no exception.1569 is one of 150 or so drawings that I've misplaced.When friends ask if I have a drawing of a certain DSO and I dont ,I can always suggest that they view your blog or your postings here. Chances are that you do have a drawing.I can look at your sketchers all day sir,another well done.    Michael
