This is a very nice sketch Roy! Thanks for sharing.  M76 though, right?

Very nice Roy!  You've got the dumbbell shape and the more tenuous gases around it as well as some nice field stars.

Regards and clear skies,

Randolph

Roy,

 

Your sketch of M76 shows some nice detail that is not visible under poor sky conditions.

Well done.

 

Frank :)

It counts to use a lot of magnification (and aperture too) at this nebula. Thank you!
