You captured a lot of detail in this faint globular. Beautiful!

What a beautiful sketch. Very nice detail as always. Bravo.

Awesome job! I have to say, the extra 14" of aperture sure makes globulars much more difficult to sketch

I've actually forgotten to tell the best bit! All around me I could see distant flashes of lightning. Really spectacular, whilst at my place there were only cirrus clouds and that one hole around M56! :photo:

M5 is also my favorite big bright globular with all those stars arching out from the center like a pinwheel.
Your decision to sketch M56 is a great second choice because it resides in a dazzling star field and presents a great look as your sketch reveals.
