Sixteen-year-old observer Brandon Doyle of Albion, New York, is an enthusiastic sketcher at the eyepiece. For ample evidence of this, see his story, “How to sketch deep-sky objects,” in the January 2012 issue of Astronomy. In that story, you’ll find 16 of Brandon’s sketches made with his 10-inch Dobsonian reflector. However, not all of his great drawings made it into the story. For example, see the attached sketch of the Seyfert galaxy M77 made with his 10-inch scope at 200x on November 25, 2011. What a beautiful rendering of this galaxy! Congratulations, Brandon! And stay tuned for more of Brandon’s sketches in the future.
