  1. I didn’t realise until yesterday that SN2014L was circa Mag 15.3 at the time that I made this sketch! Many thanks for posting it Jeremy πŸ™‚

  2. Hello Dale,

    That is a very impressive capture of the supernova in M99. In addition it is a wonderful sketch of the face on spiral galaxy to boot.
    Continued clear skies to you for observing and sketching my dear friend.

  3. Well done Dale, thanks for those who have not the equipment making possible to see objects at mag 16.

    Excellent rendering of the galaxy.

    Please let us have more nice sketches like this.
