In Southern Skies at the moment and made the most of the opportunity to sketch some really nice deep sky objects in and around the teapot including M7 and the Lagoon Nebula (with Mars adjacent to it)


One thought on “The Butterfly Cluster M6”

  1. Kevin,

    Very nice sketch of M6. Your sketch has a 3 dimensional quality to it. The “butterfly” really comes through.
