    Default Messier 30 Certificate



    Ok, I got started on this last night. I started out with an easy one M42. Attached is my log/sketch of the object.

    Be nice, this was my first sketch.

    Next up will probably be one of the clusters in Auriga.

    Hello Brian,

    thanks for sharing your precise documentation.

    I have ordered the Messier DSOs for a typical sky scanning with binos. This helped me in February-March.

    Best
