One more sketch, thru 15x70 - white chinagraph on black ,bit windy..
IC2602 aka southern pleiades -I prefer not to use the pleiades connotation - i rather it has its own identity - it is worthy of being unique - terrific object

i didn't get the spacing between the stars right at the bottom of the object, will try again later when it's not so windy

Looking at how closely your sketch matches what Cartes du Ciel shows me, I'd say you did remarkably well.

Daniel,

I followed your link from the sketching forum. I agree, I think you nailed the image down. Well down.

Daniel,
Well done indeed! I wish I could see this cluster with my own eyes. Lucky you. Thanks for posting your work.
