Ah... the lovely Needle... I agree completely that this is a must see for everyone. Apart from that, you made a superb drawing, John. The texture is so realistic that you could almost touch it. Very very nicely done!

Very nice sketch John, you recorded a lot of fine detail. Almost feel like I am looking through the eyepiece.

Best,
