Hi there

I managed to get out on the 20th/21st for the first time in a month and got a couple of sketches down.

Hope you enjoy them.

Excellent observations of M11, M27, and M57. You have recorded theses DSO's very nicely. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

I inverted them in Photoshop Dee. Thanks phxbird and Carlos for the kind comments, it makes me want to go and do more, but it's cloudy here at the moment, as usual :rollgrin:

These are outstanding! Love the Ring and the shape you captured there. M11 is one of my favorite Messier for OC's. Well done.
