    Default M106 & ngc 4248



    Here is my last astro sketch from this spring. M106 & NGC 4248. The sketch shows better in my album on my homepage on the AF. I see some people know how to post images right here larger. Any advice on how this is done?

    Now I guess it's time for some summer astro sketches! Hopefully tonight.

    Greg,

    Nicely done! Great sketch! Two ways I know to post is upload direct or upload to your album then copy paste your album url of pic.

    Thanks Jeff. It doesn't seem to copy right from the photo in the album...just the link. That's easier for folks than navagating to my page and album. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Why the photo won't just paste.

    I use Adobe Photoshop and "Invert" the drawings to B&W.
