Dale Holt writes: "Last week using the 14" Newt & Watec Camera, I sketched each member of the Leo Triplet individually. There is only a very narrow FOV when using the video camera with this scope but the detailed revealed is quite incredible. Having made 3 individual sketches I asked my very good friend & accomplished planetary imager Simon Kidd if he could make up a composite for me in Photoshop and add some field stars. Sketches made using black Conte pastel & blending stumps on white cartridge paper, scanned and inverted to white on black. All the magic is then carried out by Simon"
