Wonderful Double Cluster

every equipment, even naked eye. The view is really impressive so I made
a decision to sketch it.

  1. Very good Daniel, I know just how hard open clusters are to sketch! I haven’t dare attempt the Double cluster yet ;o)

    Warm regards, Dale

  2. What a wonderful sight that double-cluster is! Thank you for reminding me that I need to get my telescope out and do some more viewing and sketching. A wonderful eyepiece view! Thanks! -Andy
