I would agree with all others here. Although I produced these two comparisons to show light pollution effects, they would suffice as examples to show, say a difference between a 60mm refractor and 10 inch Dobsonain. -M

Matman You have captured a perfect example of what a dark site can offer,and made me realize how much I wish I were there.It is a real treat to be there with the whole universe at your eye and nothing to stop you but the aperture of your instrument.(And the weather of coarse) :smirk:

This is becoming a collection of great sketches from some of the best deep sky sketchers alive today.

Haven’t logged on for a while but I rely happy to see all your answers. JakeSaloranta amazing sketches, really happy to see comparison between 3 inch refractor and bigger reflector.
John K, nice pic with your 15 inch. and thanks for all the other posts aswell. Ive never looked at space with anything bigger than my four inch achro, but really looking forward to see at some messier object with 8 inch or bigger from a dark site in the future. man this is a great hobby!
