Long time since i sketched something. An easy target to find. Not easy at all to sketch. Very big. A "australis" favorite. Carina is all good. I intend to spent this period on it. Its just in the right position to observe this amazing constelation from my small window.

Yes, thanks for sharing this with those of us in the Northern hemiphere. I like how you represented the magnitude of the stars differently.

Looks great, a little beyond my best ideal horizon.
Well done. :cool: :rainbow:
