Few nights ago I went out observing, before someone gets idea to put us in quarantine because of COVID-19 virus.

Seeing was good at start of night while I was catching faint fuzzies in Cancer. Later, when it came time to observe Eskimo, seeing went from good to bellow average.
That didn't stop me from using magnification of 465x while sketching :grin:


I must admit that central "face" of the Eskimo wasn't so prominent as on sketch, but it is very hard for me to get good representation of small brightness difference with graphite pencils. I could have used Photoshop magic to even it out, but hey! I'm doing sketching here which aren't supposed to be perfect representations of objects.

Enjoy and stay safe.

This is great work, Vedran, and I like your stars there - immediately gives one the idea of the seeing conditions.
