M80 - My first globular sketch.

Here's my first sketch of any Messier object. I think I find globulars very neat to sketch digitally, the blending and blurring tools come in most handy.

John,

This is a very realistic eyepiece view of M 80 at low power.
Nice sketch and thank you for posting it here.

John,

An excellent observation of the globular cluster M80. This is an accurate view of the cluster at low power. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

This really looks like the globular cluster at low power. Good Job! Am I correct that this was not completed at the telescope? How did you do it digitally? Did you make a rough sketch and then do it on the computer? I am courious about your process because it looks really good. Thanks for shareing it.
