I was not all that impressed with the quality of the observing conditions while I was sketching this impressive galaxy.
Waves of unsteady air were crossing the eyepiece field at intervals.
Still when there is a clear sky to be had then beggars cannot be choosers.
NGC 1313 is big and bright enough to hold its own in such conditions.
A noted Star Burst galaxy as is quite evident from its ramshackle appearance.
In a large dob this galaxy is a very rewarding sight.
