Hi everyone

Another clear night here in Dublin, two in the same week has to be some kind of record over here :grin:. Out under the stars I grabbed another couple of sketches that I hope you enjoy.

A nice easy start to the evening.

A tight compact globular

What I did notice about M15 was that the core was offset, in most globulars that I have observed the core lies at the heart of the cluster surrounded by a circular, or near circular, halo of stars, it's nice to see something a little different.

Thanks for taking the time.
