Just after I finished this drawing, I read that Polaris might have two more companion stars.

Drawn with a 2B graphite pencil on Canson paper, then processed with GIMP 2.8 software.

(I hope I got the N,S,E,W directions correct.)

Hello, Roy. 

 

It seems our friend Polaris has no less 5 companions!

 

That's how many I'm counting here. lol.gif
