Object name: Ring Nebula, M57
Object type: planetary nebula
Location: Ferrara, Italy
Media: HB pencil, photoshop
Description: I watched M57 using my Dobson 254 mm and 48x magnification with UHC filter. It was gleaming and brand. The sky wasn’t excellent because the lights of the city bleached it but anyway I like this object so much.
Hope you like it!

  2. Silvia,

    I get the feeling I am looking right through the eyepiece when looking at your wonderful sketch!
