Beehive with 10x50s

Recommended Posts

I haven't sketched from binoculars yet but the Beehive was so obvious last night to the naked eye and very pleasing with the 10x50s. I couldn't begin to sketch in every star visible but it all seemed to work out well...

Great binocular object. Includes many nice "pairs" some of which you have sketched.    😀

This was my first "sketching" target with the 15x70s and it is a quite magnificent target. Your result is vastly superior to mine.

Great sketch of a lovely object.
Whenever I observe the Beehive it always draws me in to spend ages following the various trails of stars contained there.
Thanks for sharing.

Terrific sketch Mark, and arguably observed and drawn using the best possible instrument for the task. Love it! :icon_biggrin:

I've been studying the bee hive this week for my first time.

Looked amazing through my 120ed with 26mm nagler. 😀.

Infact it's all I studied for 4 hours on Monday night.
