Here is another recent wide field sketch I did. This one is a binocular view of globular cluster M22 and the surrounding region of the 'Tea Pot' in Sagittarius, which includes Kaus Borealis and Flamsteed 28 near the edge of the field of view. This time I show the effect of light pollution, getting it somewhat right. Remember, I'm pretty new at this. This is the negative of my sketch.

Ed, you clearly have a flair for this! I'm thinking that a DSO scope won't be far away as your "addiction" sets in.....

Nice wide field sketch of M22 region, quite some time since I last observed this object.

Ed,

Beautifully captured. M22 is a very spectacular globular cluster that you have sketched superbly.

Frank :)
