Nice sketch

You captured the field stars and globular itself very nicely. Thanks for sharing!

Clear Skies,
Brandon Doyle

Excellent job capturing not only the stars, but the tendrils. I like this one a lot!

Mizar 76,

It looks very, very fine.
I'll bet your sky was better than average to get such a nice view.

@Frank

In fact, the quality of the sky was not the best of its ability, the galaxies were very diaphanous, little more than ghosts, but the globular clusters were clearly visible.
I spent a lot of time on the evening before drawing M3 to try to make the most of the object. I feel fortunate to be successful in this sketch!

Great sketch of this fine globular! You've captured some of the subtle details of this object, such as the way it almost flairs with arms out towards the north and east with a subtle haze of mottled, not-quite resolved stars.
