    Hi Taiat. A very nice set of sketches from you. These are among the finest that I have seen, and your descriptive layout is superb. And, congratulations on adding 7 more Messier objects to your sketches collection. Thanks for sharing these fine works with us Taiat, and best wishes on your progress towards the M80 Sketch Award.

    Very much enjoy your sketches. Also like the format and the log information. Great idea to type it up. I can barely read mine sometimes!
