Nice sketches.
What scope were you using and what is that figure around that star in 70 Oph?

Voyager75,

Nice work on the globular clusters. You were seeing them very well.
70 Oph and :rainbow: its companion are a colorful binary pair and you have captured them nicely. :rainbow:

Frank :)

Excellent observations of M10, M12, and 70 Ophiuchus. You have captured the two globular clusters very nicely as well as the double star. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

I like the colors by the double. Richard already asked the question: what's the figure around the orange star?
