Sketch and Details by Dale Holt
Perhaps as a follow on to Jeff Young’s superb NGC 7331 “Deer Lick with fleas” My own rendition of Stephan’s Quintet might fit well?
On the 2nd of October this year I used my observatory 14″ F5 Newt with Watec 120n video camera sketching from a 9″ B&W monitor, using a graphite pencil plus blending stump on standard cartridge paper to capture the enigmatic Stephan’s Quintet.
The image was scanned and turned to a negative to give a more realistic and pleasing view. I caught up with this exquisite galaxy cluster following some wonderful shared visual studies with my 20″ at the Kelling Heath Autumn Equinox star party in Norfolk, England the previous week.
