Some more sketches done with little 8x21 binoculars, from my backyard. I was laboriously alternating between aiming the binoculars and sketching - a technique I do not recommend!

Little "masterpieces" indeed...especially factoring in method. Nicely done, thank you for sharing!

The huge field of view in your sketches is wonderful - it may be a pain in the butt to produce but your results are well worth the effort!!

It is truly amazing what can be achieved in regards to sketching with a small pair of 8X21 binoculars.

To be capable of fitting the main part of Delphinus in a 5 degree field of view ought to be greatly admired. 

 

Thank you from Aubrey.

Enjoyed your bino sketches and know the patience it takes to sketch this way. When I get away from my scope for a while I often pull out my binoculars to lure me back in again. Nice work On the sketches
