Welcome to Cloudy Nights, Nightwid!

Thank you for sharing these great sketches - the M35 and NGC 2158 pair are spectacular, and must be moreso with your 15-inch reflector.

I note that you're observing from Seoul? How bad is the light pollution there? I ask as I observe from severe light pollution where I can see stars to around magnitude 4.0 at best. I find it inspiring to see sketches from other observers who seek out deep sky objects despite light pollution.

Fantastic sketch Nightwind, the centre rendition with the field of view circle nicely frames it.

I look forward to more sketches.

May I ask what the symbol in the upper right corner is?

Nightwid,

Welcome to the Cloudy Nights Sketching Forum. An excellent observation of M35 and NGC 2158. You have recorded this beautiful open cluster(s) very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all. I look forward to your future observations.

Carlos

Thank you for your attention to my sketch!
But, I have one mistake..
Observing location is Chiak Mt, 150km from Seoul.
(Seoul is my house!)
Seoul is a metropolitan city, light pollution is too serious.
and limiting magnitude is only 3.5!!

Usually Seoul's observers travel to rural area, far away from Seoul (more than 150km)

Upper right side symbol is a kind of korean traditional seal.
In Korea, and East Asia, painters have unique seal, called 'Nak gwan'
After complete picture, stamp their's seal on picture's side.

My seal is consist of star, moon and my name.
Original color is red. But this picture use reverse scanning mode.
So color is change.. red -> yellow

awesome sketch! i like how you pointed out the star chains, and the "globular" like appearance of NGC 2158 is very realistic to what one might see with a low power ep.

GOOD JOB!

Nightwid,

A star studded sketch of a pair of line of sight open clusters. Your stars look great against that black velvet.

Wonderful.

nice sketch, i can vouch for the poor skies of seoul, i spent last christmas teaching english for a few weeks & all i could see were the moon & the two brighter planets. Nightwid - in which direction is Mt Chiak?

If you come back to korea, I'll show you the way to the observation site!

And, our astronomical association(night flight) is going to Australia this summer, to observe southern sky!
It's my long-standing wish..
