Had a bit of fun with this one using an AT6RC and a Baader Hyperion Mark III zoom. Pretty pleased with the RC (that is meant to be an imaging scope for my husband but I've been taking it for a stroll lately). link to full report


@57x magnification



@ 171x magnification:



And here's the higher magnification sketch flipped vertically to show the number 37.



Sketches created with AL templates, #2 graphite pencil, super-fine Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen S, 0.5mm mechanical pencil.
