Sketch notes
I was glad to get this sketch done and finish of the last of my summer Messier sketches.
I actually found it quite hard to find as it was almost hidden away in a backdrop of thousands of stars in out Milky way. I could of spent hours trying to add all the stars that filled the FoV but instead chose just to include the main brighter stars that make the object.
