I always enjoy observing open clusters and many of us know how painstaking they can be to sketch as there is always a lot going on in the EP.
Nice sketch indeed.

But I think it's never too cold to observe and sketch. When it's freezing cold, I use thin but warm winter cycling gloves with long fingers. They are warm enough and I can still hold the pencils. I've also noticed, that it really makes you feel comfortable during the Winter, if you sit on an observing chair and you have some small stool to put your feet on.

But one of the problems I have in the cold is that my eyes water like a small river. And of course who wants to get salt water all over beautifully clean lenses?

This is a very nice capture of this open cluster.
