S1mas,

This is always a fine open cluster to view when high above the North Star. Your sketch of it is wonderful. :bow:

Frank :)

S1mas, I always like how you draw the glow in open star clusters.

S1mas,

Great sketch of a curious open cluster! Your rendition closely matches what I was able to see of M52 during the autumn. Thanks for sharing this!

AH! Another great sketch S1mas :bow: I like the way you catch the glow around the stars. Very nice :D

I also sketched this one with my hand in a brace, but I'm not going to post it-unless. ;) I might.
