I've observed these two a lot of times, so I thought I'd sketch them. Hope you like.....

Wow, that's a lot of detail in Thor's Helmet. I did not see as much in 12 inches.

I love Thor's Helmet, but like Ivan Maly do not see that much detail through bigger scopes where I observe.  Perhaps I need to move to New Zeland.
