Rony, this is a terrific sketch. I find it very useful to see what I should expect from a bino observation.

Thanks for posting!

Jean

Rony,

This is very impressive. The nebulosity here does not improve with increase in magnification in my experience.
This view, if I were at the eyepieces, would be about as good as it gets.

Rony, I keep missing your posts, or perhaps you were not posting for a bit. Regardless, sure like to see you stuff, and this one is very nice. Looking forward to more.
