Hello ASOD, this time I send this drawing of Messier 6
Author: Sergio Rodrigo Green
Object: Messier 6
Tools: Pencil HB, and white sheet.
Location: Viamonte, Argentina.
I send you a big hug and wished posteen my sketch, Greetings!
Please find hereby a recent sketch of the barred spiral galaxy M109 in Ursa Major, made during our astro-holiday in Northern France about a month ago. That night the sky completely cleared out with impressive SQM values around 21.6 – being amongst the highest possible in light-polluted Western Europe.
One of the objects scheduled to revisit was Messier 109, since it contains a complex barred spiral structure that is difficult to visually discern. Attentive averted vision under a dark sky though brings out these beautiful features!
Location: 18 April 2015 – 23h54 UT – Grandpré (Fr)
Conditions: NELM 6.6 – SQM-L 21.6 – Seeing moderate
Optics: SCT C11 (279mm f/10) – Nagler 13mm (215x – FOV 23 arcm) – no filters
Media: graphite pencil on white paper, scanned & inverted using GIMP2
Large diffuse face-on galaxy, displays a bright core containing a diagonal barred structure through a round, mottled glow. Attentive averted vision brings out a subtle theta-like structure, less intense at the eastern side and more pronounced on the northwest and southern outer side. The inside of the barred spiral, to the eastside of the core, appears more dark and contains a nice faint field star.
Additional observations of that night can be found in the deepsky database www.deepskylog.org
This sketch of my favorite planet of the solar system, that day their moons aligned, the great red spot and below this, the shadow of Europe, the picture was very rewarding and enjoyed meeting observation, but since the city only allows this type comments, try to have a place for these events really impressive. The original sketch was reduced and adjusted as is the eyepiece.
Los objetos más importantes se les suele echar un vistazo siempre que están a nuestro alcance, pero las sensaciones son siempre distintas en cada observación. Antes de esta observación y no sé porque, esta notable galaxia, nunca me había llamado la atención.
The most important objects are often look so long as they are within our reach, but the feelings are always different in each observation. Before this observation and not know why, this remarkable galaxy, never caught my attention.
