Here are some summer globs I sketched last year. I've got some lighting problems, but otherwise they turned out pretty good.

First up is M13, a spectacularly bright ball of stars.

Next is M92, being so close to M13, it's often overlooked. That's just a fold in the paper above it.

Finally, it's M4. Not much to say about this one...

Nice capture of these images and I like your globulars. Spring brings the galaxies but it reminds me that the summer time observing is coming ... thanks for sharing.

TenthEnemy,

These are all excellent sketches of globulars. I can certainly tell you put in a good amount of time on the details of these three. Each one is an excellent representations of the real eyepiece appearance of these beautiful globulars. Thank you for posting these they are really great sketches. I do most of my observing with a 10 inch scope and I could not draws these as well as you have here. :bow: :rainbow: :cool:

Frank :)

Wow one of the best series of globular clusters i yet seen, i especially like the glow among the tiny stars, i remember seeing these beauties in a dark sky last summer, when i would look directly at the cluster i would see the glow and stars, using averted vision the glow would became tiny stars thanks for posting great work again..
