Beautiful sketch. You have a fine refractor. The festoon bases on the NEB with light oval in between is excellent. That scope sounds like a nice grab and go.My first telescope was an inexpensive 60mm refractor that gave my first views of planets and DSO's. It just so happens that I'm waiting on an order for a SW 100 ED to compliment my 10" newt. I'm sure it will be fun to have a refractor again.

Very nice. It is always fun to see all the moons on one side of Jupiter. I like to test myself to see if I can tell them apart at these times.

That is a beautiful sketch. I love my AT72. Last night two of Jupiters Moons looked like a double star they were so close.
