This gallery is dedicated to our very own Alan Snook’s mammoth project to observe and record by sketching, the whole of Halton Arp’s ‘Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies’.  The observations for this project were made with Alan’s half metre (20″) Dobsonian-mounted newtonian telescope.  Alan has completed 100 out of the full 338 galaxies so far, and more will be added here as we get chance to put them up.  More information on the atlas itself can be seen on the Wikipedia Page.  Thanks to Alan for letting us host them here.

The logs can be downloaded as a PDF from here….
