One thought on “Galactic Archipelago”

  1. Excellent work, am I right you made this sketch with just over 4″ aperture telescope? Very impressive indeed.
    I just love the dust lane in M82 detectable as a notch in your rendition. I just adore this group of galaxies from the two bright members to their more challenging close neighbours and visit there often. Thanks for stirring happy thoughts.

    Warm regards, Dale
