Hi Asod! Last night I observed Beta Monocerotis, which is called the most beautiful multiple star of our skies. I also loved it, so I decided to sketch the star with my dobsonian telescope 10” f/5. Seeing was not bad, so with 250x I could note easily all the components; but colours were not simple to note, all of them seem to me white, bluish and greenish…
Wonderful star!

  1. Wonderful star and really nice sketch.
    It’s difficult to render star color, but you did it well.
    I will try to find this star system soon. Good idea.
