Hi! I' m Massimiliano and this is my first post! I come from the south of Italy (Lecce) and I' m 16 yo. I observe the night sky since june, when I bought a Dobson GSO 10", but first I used a refractor 50/700. Since them I've observed about 150 DSO and 50 double star, and I drawn some of them. These are some of my sketches:

I really enjoyed your technique for rendering stars: color, rings, and even the glow. Very well done. Whatever you're doing, keep it up...it works.
