Hi everyone!
This is my next DS sketch. This time I drew M92 globular cluster. I
used Baader Hyperion 13mm Eyepiece. In my opinion this is quite good
Eyepiece for this sort of things. As my media I used graphite pencil
and white sheet of paper. I did small corretions in GIMP too. M92 is
one of my favourite deep sky obejcts. It’s small globule but for me
its admirable. So, I spent about 2h doing this sketch. Mainly because
its hard to locate this quantity of stars properly.The weather was
good enough to made this capture, I wish you have clear sky too.
However the seeing was not excellent again but its not uncommon in a
place where I live. Additionally light pollution from streets lanterns
irritate me all the time. However astronomy is too fantastic hobby to
stop doing sketches only because of lanterns.
I hope you enjoy my sketch.

Greetings from Poland
