Another great sketch Alex. And what a challenge. Such a large and populous open cluster - I could not imagine trying to capture it.

Regarding sketches looking "flat" - well, hmmm. I am in vigorous disagreement. Firstly, for me the priority is an accurate representation of what is seen at the eyepiece. Secondly, with the talent that you have, these are always inspiring. I don't think you need to "sex them up", although the spikes do make it look pretty. Your sketches just as they are are inspiration enough for me.
