A few deep-sky targets (Iris Nebula, Fetus Nebula, Minkowski's Footprint): observing report.

A couple of solar prominence sketches: observing report.

Cheers,

Jeff,

All these sketches are impressive and congratulations on resolving Minkowski's footprint; that is better than I have done with that distant planetary. It is always a pleasure to see your sketches and it is obvious you work at making them true to the eyepiece view. :cool: :bow:

Frank :)

Thanks, Frank. I'll have to go back and see if I can get Minkowski's Butterfly now; I've made a few half-hearted stabs at it in the past but never anything concerted.

Cheers,
-- Jeff.
