Greetings to all the ASOD community, I share this sketch of a fascinating open cluster in the constellation Vulpecula. It is amazing the eyepiece, lots of stars of various magnitudes with asterisms of all forms in the imagination and also a double star, all accompanied by the gaseous layer that surrounds the star cluster. Very good image even at low power.

Best regards.

  1. NGC 6888 The Crescent Nebula, the NGC 40, NGC 6995 the Veil Nebula, and here NGC 6940 in Vulpecula. What a nice sketch serie ! It’s so interesting to see what can be seen through the EP facing the classical colourful photo views.
