Hi all,

 

I'm new on this forum, this is my first post.

I am also relatively new in sketching, which I enjoy doing. I've currently finished around 60 sketches.

 

I would like to share some of my recent sketches that I made from asterisms in Hercules. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed making them.

 

Cheers,

Jan.

Welcome on CN! These are fine sketches. Ideal objects for light polluted regions.

Whether these are your first or 1000th submission, these sketches are excellent. 

 

Very well done Jan - keep them coming!

 

Clear skies,

Who would ever have thought such asterisms had these designations?

Brilliant work, Jan!

I have observed DoDz clusters in the past. 

But I didn't know they were asterisms at all. 

It goes to show we can still learn something new very day. 

Please give us some more, Jan. 

 

Clear skies, 

 

Aubrey.

Thank you all for the encouraging comments. I would have posted lots more but I was limited to 500 KB.
