The new blog post (address under my signature) has the sketch of the two objects at 16 power using a Sky Window as well as a story about 'looking and seeing'. There is religious content.

I had a look at your blog (was a long time ago...) and always like the use of color in your sketches (especially the 3 day moon and the moonset).

Roland,

I must say I like M44 in a small scope but I prefer the view of M67 in a medium to large scope. Both sketches are keepers.

Frank :)
