Just stunning, Justin! You've drawn it with a lot of patience and skill, which are absolute requirements for this nebula with its rich cluster. Just a thought, but have you considered working it out on the pc?

Peter, I've never tried it though I've seen many of those beautiful sketches online, but I don't even know where to start :question:

Good drawing of M-8, which is actually quite hard to draw because there is so much detail visible even in a small telescope from a good site. It's even harder to draw through a large telescope. I see you are using a 6-inch Newtonian, which is very similar to the Meade model 628 Newtonian I had. You are making excellent use of yours. :bow:
