Dale's Observation Comments
Hi All, here is my sketch of M82 with the glorious Supernova, such a
privilege to be able to see such amazing happenings in the
universe from ones own garden :) My estimate of current
magnitude is Mag 11 to 11.5 using local stars as known
reference. I hope that you get to see it soon too, if you
haven't seen it already.
My sketch from last night (25th Jan 2014) using the 12" D-K Mewlon, pleased with this one.
Diagonal used, laterally inverted. Pentax 20mm E/P, 70° AFOV
, x180. Not very transparent; Mag 5 Nelm , Ant III Seeing
Haven't got a clue where North was (diagonal used,
equatorial mount, near the pole etc) :-)
