Amazing view of Pleiades in a small scope. It was my first WOW object when I got my small refractor btw :)

S1mas,

A beautiful observation of the Pleiades (M45) in Taurus. You have captured the glow of the brighter members of the cluster very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

This is a great sketch; you've captured the look of the Pleiades perfectly.

All of the other sketches you recently posted are wonderful as well. I hope to see more.
