M83




M83
Constellation - Hydra
Spiral galaxy
Distance - 16mly
Mag 7.5

Date 30/4/14
Transparency - poor
SQM 21.5 (LM 6.4)

Telescope 16" f/4.5
EP 17.3mm Delos x109 (TFoV 0.39')

Sketch notes
Just 8˚ above the horizon and caught in a low level mist at sea so it was really difficult to accurately add anything to the sketch!
I did notice a central bar but no signs of any other detail.
I think this would be a great sight at lower latitudes.
