I made this sketch of galaxy M104 May 17 in my suburban Ottawa backyard in graphite on white paper and then inverted it in Corel Paint Shop Pro. The galaxy is not large in this eyepiece (17mm Hyperion) so there is little detail but the view is lovely.


One thought on “Messier 104”

  1. I love galaxies and this one is special. Good job in spite of the poor conditions near a huge town. I often observe from my garden too.
    You’re right, this scenery is interesting.
