Home from Florida and every night for the past week has been cloudy. Some clearing last night so I tried NGC 6910 in Cygnus with and 8.8 Meade Ultrawide lens on my 8" Dobsonian. Done just before yet another cloud band crossed this part of the sky,

A real beauty, Randolph! The open clusters in CYG are a real challenge because there always seems to be an infinite amount of stars in the FOV that it's making you dizzy at a certain point. Very well done!

Randolph,

The open cluster looks very nice in your sketch. We need enough clear nights to get our direct viewing and sketching fix.

Oh yes, the Rocking Horse cluster with its mesmerizing yellow eye, one of my personal favourites. Thanks for sharing your sketch, it looks very very accurate!

Thanks all for encouraging words. I am trying to get more acclimated to deep sky sketching ( lunar was my "thing" ).
Tried another Cygnus open cluster last night but gave up after all the milky way field stars made my head spin!
