Object Name (NGC 4666 and ASASSN-14LP)
Object Type (Galaxy and Supernova)
Location (Observatoire Astronomique de Bauduen – Provence France)

Media (graphite pencil, white paper, just rapid usage of Paint.net to invert the B&W)
Here’s the sketch I made while looking at this galaxy. The mag. estimation I did is far better than expected : 11.2.
A target easy to find because the galaxy NGC 4666 is quite big and very close to gamma Virgo with a confortable magnitude, but the SN is very close to the galactic centrum, only 12 sec of arc!!, so to separate the two lights the use of the 24″ helps a lot.
