Thanks for sharing that with us. It's nice to see one made with binoculars.

Thanks mathteacher.
Yep, I showed my other sketch that I did using my scope to another person and he said that I should his binoculars.
WOW! That made a big difference. I saw the whole Pleiades and not just a part.

Lynn,

I really like your sketch of M45. Sometimes it takes a couple of attempts to get items down correctly. Great job sticking with it!

Lynn,

Yet another beautiful open cluster sketch. You must be quite pleased with your recent sketches. They are all very well done including this one.

Thanks Jay and Frank,
I think I'm improving on my sketches. I still need to work on things. Practice Practice Practice that's all I need to do.

Nice binocular catch. People kind of forget M45 in the Spring, but it's a beautiful sight all the time.

Nice sketch Lynn. I've always enjoyed M45 and it is one of my wife's favourites too in the 3" Dob.

Nice sketch, Lynn. M45 is a beautiful object in binoculars. Astrosketching is definitely a learn by doing skill to acquire.
