Simas,

Excellent observations of all three objects. M13 appears to explode in your fine rendering of it. NGC 7008 (The Fetus Nebula) is very interesting as well. The Western Veil (NGC 6960) is very well rendered and appears to exhibit a slight glow. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Carlos

Simas,

The sketches you have recently completed look just great. The bright part of the Veil Neb. is true to the eyepiece view. The Fetus Neb. is as well. I also like the way you handled M 13. All in all well rendered sketches. :bow: :cool:

Frank :)

Great sketches Simas, M13 almost has a 3D effect to it :bow:. For some reason I keep seeing a Pteranodon flying in front of the sun/moon/light in your Veil Nebula sketch. :question:

Thanks all for your kind word guys.
Michael - Pteranodon sounds to scary to me. Especially because yesterday I have got wild boar, or maybe few of them near my observing site :D
