John,

Very nice sketches and congratulations( :applause: ) on finishing your M list. :bow: :rainbow:
NGC 5907 is really a beautiful needle and NGC 5866 is alway a little brighter in the eyepiece than I expect it to be.

Frank :)

John,

Really like both sketches but I agree with Markus, NGC 5907 is the one I like the best.

John,

Excellent observations of M102 and NGC 5907. You have captured both objects very nicely in the eyepiece field. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
