@Chris: You're right about the star field. It is trickier than it looks and every drawing is a new challenge, trying to improve over the previous one until I get it exactly right. I'm still not 100% satisfied but I'll get there.
@Christopher: I originally make a pencil drawing and then "improve" it on the pc. You can find a tutorial with some of my tricks on my website.

Another great. Feel like I am looking through your scope in Italy. It's raining here
Such subtle fine detail.

I've always appreciated the refined smoothness of your work.

This is a perfect open cluster for your fast 18" scope, it looks great in your sketch.
That is a "real" eyepiece view.
