  1. Hello!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks too much for publishing my sketch!! I have to tell you that im pretty sure that the object is C96 – NGC 2516 (C from Cadwell catalogue, not Collinder), sorry if i didnยดt give you well the information of this sketch. The title could be just Cadwell 96.
    On the other hand, im glad to tell you this is the first astronomy sketch ive ever made ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks again for sharing it!! And i hope i learn a bit more every day about this wonderful hobby. Best Regards!!

  2. Good idea to render the star colours, it’s useful.
    Good job with binocular, not easy to stay on the object.
    Did you use a tripod ?
