I did two sketches las week. The first one M34, was done during my firts trip to a dark site. I wasn't planing to sketch anything, but at 1 AM, I got the urge to do it. It was quite cold and I was quite tired (I drove 250 miles to get there and 250 more to come back!)

TIME: 1 am
PLACE: Réserve faunique de la Vérandrye

EYEPIECE: Pentax 20mm (100X)
TRANSPARENCY: Good
SEING: Average



The second sketch I did from home on the 5th mostly to confirm the position of Hartley 2. It's my first "fuzzy" so bear with me on this one...
