It was amazing view I have got on that globular cluster from dark rural skies.

Great sketch! I would like to see photos of the pencils or whatever you used to make this sketch. Could you post such a photo? Thanks.

S1mas,

Your ability to accurately sketch is amazing as is the detail level. Outstanding and enjoyable to look upon.

Simas,

I like it! However to my eye the stars look a bit too "even" as the cluster has some brighter members in the halo as well. This might create a bit more realistic and 3D-like sketch but still a good sketch!
