  1. Dale,

    Beautiful work capturing so much detail in the coma and the tail. I have not had the chance to observe it in over a week. Your sketch made me sure I must! Thank you for posting it.


  2. Dale,

    Very impressive for all the detail visible and captured in your sketch.
    This continues to be a treat to see live and in sketches like this one.

    Frank 🙂

  3. Dale,

    Nice sketch with lots of detail in Lovejoy’s tail.

    I sketched C/2006 M4 (SWAN) off of a monitor back in October of 2006 using a friends 37.5cm reflector equipped with a StellaCam. I found that I could see faint detail in the outer coma and tails but at the expense of seeing detail in the inner core due to exposure issues.
