At least I think that's what these are, I just pointed at Sagittarius and found something interesting to sketch. The space between the objects isn't very accurate and the whole thing is more of an impression, I couldn't take my time as everything was forming dew.

Done with a 70mm Meade at x24.

TenthEnemy,

Looks great to me. It must have taken quite a while to draw in all these stars. On most open clusters I start losing track of where I am as I go back and forth between paper and eyepiece. Very nice work. :bow:

Frank :)

TE,

An excellent mosaic of observations of M23/24/25. You have captured these clusters very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Thanks for the much appreciated comments everyone. I was planning to observe this area again with the 10" to compare but with the clouds and moon it's going to have to wait.
