Nice one Phil, sketching is not for me but it is a good way to record what you have seen.

Thanks guys, I really enjoyed sketching this one because its a challenge. Its a very small cluster and the 4 main stars are surrounded by the fainter ones which are just on the edge of vision in my rig at high mag. Therefore this took a long time to sketch but it did the trick though I was pulling the fainter stuff out eventually. It teaches you to observe properly this sketching lark
