    Default Hello boys, I am back....



    Well...

    Months and months....working, working, working. Finally I had some clear skies, energy and time so I came back with another of my sketches. This time, from my little piece of sky, I got to see NGC3077 a new one for me, so decided to put together with its biggest sibblings M81 and M82 in a sketch using my 15mm Luminos.

    So here it is...nothing else to say.

    M81, M82 NGC3077.png

    I did a quick entry in my blog...just to fill out a huge gap of months without an entry,

    Back to sleep. Tomorrow is a day of work...

    Miss you guys!

    Very nice sketch Luis. Glad to see that you are back. You have captured the essence of NGC 3077 as a faint puffball between two eighth magnitude stars. I use NGC 3077 as a yardstick for the levels of light pollution and transparency. If I can see it, I proceed with galaxy hunting. If I can't, then I don't bother.
