Nightwid,

A beautiful and accurate rendering of the night sky including a portion of the Milky Way. You have depicted the star field perfectly. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

One of the greatest sketches I saw in this forum! What we can observe with free eyes is often much more impressive than a view in the eyepiece.
