Lovely descriptions Suzy and well done on Centaurus A. As you keep ging beck to it you will see more and more. I find that this one in particular is a bit deceptive when I have images of it from astrophotographers stuck in my head. It seems to me that they capture a wider view of the galaxy itself and the dark lanes look narrower in relation to the disc than they do visually. When I realised this it helped me get my head around what I was seeing and then pick up more detail.

A delightful read - many thanks.
