A bit random but here are my Feb images covering M35 and M46, Vesta (in LEO) and Mars. Hope you like them.

Also, if I may, a question.

My Gallery is now near its limit (approx 100 sketches). Is there a way to extend the size or must I delete old sketches?

Thanks

Thanks everyone.

S1Mas - no I could not see the PN - it was not a great location (just cresting trees) but I am learning to live with surburban skies (sadly)

Chris, I looked up the time of my Vesta sketch. We were observing at exactly the same time!!!! You're sketch has a plus because you add some color and the stars are more nicely done :waytogo: But if you don't make a digital sketch you win time and you can send the picture the next day to ASOD.
