Hi everyone

Another clear night here in Dublin, two in the same week has to be some kind of record over here . Out under the stars I grabbed another couple of sketches that I hope you enjoy.

M39



A nice easy start to the evening.

M56



A tight compact globular

M15



What I did notice about M15 was that the core was offset, in most globulars that I have observed the core lies at the heart of the cluster surrounded by a circular, or near circular, halo of stars, it's nice to see something a little different.

Thanks for taking the time.

Fantastic sketches, I wish for your sake and ours that it was clear more often for you.
