Nuncius, thanks for sharing your work. It looks like you took a lot of care to represent the broad variation between the brightest cluster members and fainter stars. How did you enjoy the process? I know I tend to put off sketching rich star fields for times when I'm feeling pretty ambitious.

The main diference is the softnes of the pencil. H2 for background and 6b or even 8B for the brighter members.

Nuncius,

An excellent observation of M7. This is one of my favorite open star clusters. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos
