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.


A nice easy start to the evening.


A tight compact globular


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.


We have your satellite if you want it back send 20 billion in Martian money. No funny business or you'll never see it again.
