Object : NGC 6520 & B86 (Ink Spot Nebula)
Object Type : Open Cluster & Dark Nebula
Location : Haleakala Summit, Maui, Hawaii
Date : 7/3/11 11:20pm
Medium : Graphite pencil on white paper
I found this object by accident while locating another object & could not take my eyes off it. The open cluster appears three dimensional next to the stark black dark nebula. I used PhotoScape to invert to black, and to sharpen up some of the stars & color the yellow star in the most western section of the drawing.
Thank you for your consideration!
