Hi ASOD community last month to observe this incredible background irregular galaxy is weak but not enough to be spooky. A striking detail is to visualize the light concentration from north to south, with the odd within this park. All the more weak and irregular with a grainy appearance of faint stars that come and go, some of them more clear and stable outer layer.

I was very pleased with what you see through the eyepiece, not expecting much of this beautiful galaxy.

Best Regards.

  1. Roberto,

    Very much enjoyed your fine sketch of this galaxy and star field. The graininess of the galaxy in your details matches well with your description. Great work.
