Ghost of Jupiter

Clear skies last night - one of the fruits was some good views of NGC 3242, the "Ghost of Jupiter". Alas not quite as good as during a brief session a couple of nights before when I could observe it at 450X. But still not bad - here is a sketch made with pastel pencil on black paper, photographed with some adjustment to contrast in GIMP.
