Description: A hurried sketch of NGC 4536 which is.a fine spiral galaxy that shows some structure at 352x. Let's begin of the core, the inner layer is very small, almost stellar, and oval outer layer surrounds it. Spiral arms are connected with the outer layer. The northern arm is clearly stronger and longer than southern one. The whole complex is involved with fainter haze with averted vision.
