M13, a first for me!

Observation of September 7, 2019 at Cap Ferret. EAA observation with SiOnyx Aurora night cam, afocal mount on Dobson 400, good seeing and transparency conditions to zenith. Original drawing on black Canson A3 format with dry pastels. Formatting with photoshop. A total of 8 hours of drawing!

 

Clear sky,

Francis

Spectacular. The same view I get visually with a 9.25" SCT under very good skies. Your sketch looks like a photo. Thanks for posting.

Francis,

 

Very carefully drawn sketch of M 13. I can tell you worked faithfully to the eyepiece view.

 

Well done.

 

Frank :)
