And NGC 604, an H II region in M33. This object was surprisingly bright, definitely easier to see than M33 itself.

Very nice sketches! I especially like the wide field shot at the top!

I agree with Brandon's comments - the sketch of the comet and Double Cluster is especially nice. Could you detect the motion of the comet while you were making the sketch?

TE,

Beautiful observations of Comet Hartley and the Double Cluster and NGC 604. The comet appears to glow and the Double Cluster shines in your fine rendering. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Carlos
