Very nice sketch Simas,
I like it when people post beautiful renderings of targets that are easily passed over.
Im going to take a good look at this one next time I'm out.

Amazing sketch! All of your work is incredibly life-like and perfectly captures the sensation of looking through an eyepiece.

Once again lots of care and attention to the details to get the sense of depth with the stars. Wonderful sketch.

I second that! Really accurate representation, not too showy and not understated... so accurate its a little uncanny.

Great sketch,
Always when looking at Stephenson 1, I have the impression to see a bee from the top where you can easily imagine its head and the wings. Funny.
