M42

I had a work trip to Sydney last month and was able to catch up with Alex. He gave me an impromptu personal lesson which was great. It was very nice to see his sketches for real. There is something a bit different about holding a piece of paper than looking at a scanned image.

While in Sydney I found time to drop into Bintel and drool. And picked up a UHC filter. Anyway last friday I finaly took it for a spin and was very impressed with the difference it makes. There is now more structure in M42 and the Tarantula that wasn't there before.

Here is my sketch of M42 from that night.
