  1. Gerardo,

    This is a fine sketch of a planetary nebula target that is a delight to study visually.

  2. NGC 6888 The Crescent Nebula, the NGC 40 here, NGC 6995 the Veil Nebula, and 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.
