Hmmm... I think something is missing from this thread.
NGC4755
Did you forget to link this one?

Anyway, nice sketches. I hope to see more from you, we don't get many southern object sketches around here, and I'm definitely interested in seeing what I'm missing.

Daniel,

An excellent observation of IC2602 (Theta Carina Cluster or Southern Pleiades) in Carina. This appears to be an interesting open cluster. Even from my latitude (+26 degrees North) this is not an easy object. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
