M63 Sunflower galaxy

Recommended Posts

By the time I got round to thisbright, tightly wound spiral I was getting pretty cold and tired, so I may not have given it my best effort :o I couldn't make out any real mottling in the outer parts but this is fairly well right over Gloucester and still in the murk. I think, with darker skies, this could be rather special.

Indeed great sketch Rik. Can't wait to get to my next star party at a dark site to check out some bright galaxies like this one. Maybe we'll compare observations ;)
