An old favourite but one I have not sketched before - the Pleiades. I used a wide field eyepiece across 4 sketches and then combined. Sadly the only nebulosity was my misting EP's

Chris,

I like your sketch of M45 and find that your efforts resulted in a fine recreation. I really like your template also.

Chris,

A beautiful observation of the Pleiades (M45). The stars appear to glow in your fine rendering. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos
