Deep Sky Drawings

In order to illustrate the article devoted to deep sky sketching (click here to read it), you may choose in the table below which deep sky object you wish to admire. These objects have been selected for their varied appearance, varied type (ie. clusters nebulae, galaxies) and to convince (if needed) that pencil and paper are (nearly) as effective as Fuji films or chilled pixels !
North is up for all drawings so that you can compare them quickly with other references (about 20ko each). © Yann POTHIER, 1998.
