Excellent observations of NGC 436, NGC 457, and NGC 7243. You have recorded them all very nicely. The red star within NGC 457 looks interesting. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

I agree, excellent sketches and I really like how you've rendered the star images. How do you do that?

Nice attention to the detail of the layouts - clusters can get fiddly!
