Nice night, tired, but who can resist a nice sky.

Roland,

Very nicely done. :cool: If those binoculars were just a bit larger we would be looking at galaxies in this field sketch too. I like the color of your frame. :)

Frank :)

Roland,

A beautiful and accurate observation of Melotte 111 (Coma Berenices Cluster). This is a striking open cluster. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Gotta confession to make on the color of the frame: this was a pencil sketch cut out and laid on a pastel blue paper. Then I inverted the sketch to get the white on black. The odd but nice looking brown is the inverted color (according to photoshop elements) of the pastel blue. I thought it was so interesting, I did not mess with it.

Thanks for the comments. It was a fun time.

Roland
