Binocular sketches in the south: M6,7,22

I have posted a new sketch and story that is summarized and linked from our Inspiration page (top left entry) on our ministry site (address below the signature). I had to catch these early since they were diving for the horizon, but it was a fun catch.

Good sketches! I never observed with a reflection mirror, but it looks like it works fine. Less pain in the neck I guess?

Roland,

Wonderful observations of M6, M7, and M22. They are well rendered using your binoculars and mirror. They inspire us all. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Carlos

Sorry, I did not see your question before. Yes, the Sky Window's biggest advantage over straight binocular viewing is the steadiness and ergonomic advantage. Another sketcher turned me on to its benefits and I found a used one. Excellent for binocular sketching. You can work for over an hour and not feel any pain or problems.

Thanks Carlos, also.
