A well known and spectacular globular cluster, Messier 92 seems to suffer from being too close in the sky to Messier 13. It is a tight cluster ( class IV ) with a blazing core. There have been many beautiful sketches here of this jewel so I thought I would add my own second attempt with my newer scope. Thanks for looking.
Regards,
Randolph

Randolph,

 

That is a beautiful capture of M 92.

I think this one has a beauty comparable to M 15.

Nice work.

 

Frank :)

Randolph, you're getting better with every sketch you make, this one is awesome! So realistic, and it's not an easy one. I think M92 is one of my favorite "big" globulars, it has a nice mixture of faint and bright stars,

Frankly realistic, very good job. A hard texture to get.
I enjoyed looking at his drawing.
Thanks and best regards. Pedro Villamiel.

That's a great sketch, I almost mistakenly took it for a photograph. Your stars look so natural, especially further away from the core.

It's not so easy, for me at least to get a globular to look as natural as your example here. (I'm still working at it) Thanks for posting this as it has renewed my interest and determination to sketch these beautiful objects.

 

Great job

I've always preffered 92 to 13 somewhat due to its concentrated core you so well show here, and explain in the text.  At highpower its a blast while 13 starts to spread out with voids in its interior.

 

Well done.

 

Pete

Thank you Pete. I also prefer M 92 ( though I certainly am a fan of it's big brother, M 13 ). The star chains in M 13 are beautiful and very obvious. M 92 is more subtle and I find it hypnotic and mysterious...
Regards,
Randy
