Hi all!
This weekend 29.06-01.07 I took a trip to the mountains where I spent two wonderfull nights with my scopes.
I started off by observing the Moon , I also tried out my new little scope I recently got - Bresser 70/700 - first I was a little skeptical about the scope , I thought its more of a toy then a scope but I was amased at the clean image I got with it . I sketched Plato and Sinus Iridium, Bianchini using this scope.
Later on I decided to observe some DSO, but the Moon was to bright and I couldn't get much detail but here are the ones I sketched with my 6" Dob.

M57
M52 - I observed the open cluster and a small nebulosity near it with 5 stars in it.

Saturday night 30.06 the wind was blowing pretty hard so my observin session was pretty short,I focused more on the Moon and Saturn and I did manage to sketch M29.

Hope you like them! :jump:
Clear skies!

Ildi,

Excellent sketches. I am a little partial to lunar sketching so those are my favorites here.

Those are excellent sketches, Ildi.

I agree with Frank, the lunar sketches are my favorite. Lots of details, great technique!

Great moonsketches! It's interesting to see how good a toyscope can be.
