Description

Out at the Fred Lossing Observatory in Almonte, Ontario with a group of friends and using a Sky-Watcher Mak-Newt to manually locate M3 (located at the intersection of one line from Arcturus to Cor Caroli and another dropping 'down' from Seginus).

Still experimenting with Autodesk Sketchbook on a Microsoft Surface Pro and working with textures, primarily for the globular. I still have problems with round stars, both out in the field and afterwards - though suspect lack of patience plays a part. This was a fun object to find and enjoyable to sketch.
