Peter, that's wonderful!
It is a favorite object of mine and the rendition you have made is fantastic
Time at the eyepiece to draw this one?

Thank you, Nick! Time at the eyepiece was about 2 hours...

Again, you have done it again Peter... Better than any possible photograph, and that's not just because I love sketching, I think that anyone looking at this beauty would say the same. I've said it so many times with your sketches, but this is one of your best in my opinion, great job!

I was hoping you would pick this one as your next target and you don't disappoint me!
Absolutely marvelous... well done!

Thank you for sharing your vision.

Fine sketch of NGC 2359 - (Thor's Helmet) .

Awesome sketch, Peter, nicely done. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to seeing more.

Well done would be an understatement. That wreathy (is that a word?) nebulosity you've rendered is astonishing. And this one is bright enough for me to actually see!

This is a beautiful sketch of Thor's Helmet.
Very fine detail.
I have not looked at NGC 2359 in years.
For some reason I forget about it when it is visible.
I need to take a look soon.

You are Thor lol!
I've looked at all the thread like filaments and the overlay of complexity, I'm amazed you got it all down ! It's bristling with details. It's got me motivated now to look this one up. I've never once observed it though I've send photos a plenty. And you did it in two hours. Thor indeed!

WoW ! Peter
What can I say? you eased my aperture fever... admiring the view trough your eyepieces is almost real.
I noticed your fine drawing skills when you presented us with that beautiful original sketch of the moon.
Do you take requests?

Oh my.....the detail here is truly exceptional. You have such a talent, and thank you for sharing it with us. What I would give to look in that big binocscope.
