First sketch- NGC 1365

#1

Post by NGC 1365 »

A first attempt at one of my favourite galaxies, the great barred spiral in Fornax as seen through my 18 inch F4.5 dob. The detail in the core was visible directly, although very faint, and could be seen curving to the centre. Seeing was good.

DSO- 18 inch F4.5, 10 inch F6
Lunar- SW 180 Mak
Solar- DS LS100
Binoculars- Oberwerk BT100

And as on clear nights they watch the familiar, unhurried, timeless stars go by in their quiet splendour, they may perhaps achieve that sense of calm and rhythm and beauty that is often denied to worried men and women in a bustling world.

Very nice, Ivan!

Man, that looks like a nice galaxy! Looks like it culminates at 17° from my latitude. Hmm, doable but not a good view. Might try it (sky permitting). :)
