Hi ASOD, shipping this sketch of the last observation of the past month. With a good night’s transparency and stability, with many details in M 106 as his arms as S as never could see, but more rewarding was seeing the small companion galaxy NGC 4248 somewhat weak but detected no problems, perhaps the light of the main galaxy eclipse the detail of the small but very surprised.

Best regards.
