Lovely sketches. I just recently "discovered" M71 which is on of my favourite.

The treatment of M27 is very nice and subtle!

Simas,

Beautiful done. These really are two showpiece deep sky targets of summer and fall. They look especially nice in your versions.

Frank :)

Simas,

Excellent observations of M27 (Dumbbell Nebula) and M71. You have captured them both very nicely. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Carlos
