Jewel Box and Coal Sack

Small rich field telescopes can be too easily overlooked for larger apertures.  The problem with this is the larger picture of the way individual objects relate to their immediate neighbours can be lost.

This sketch was done back in April during the Ice In Space Astro Camp.  It is one of my all time favourite areas of the sky, and it requires the right instrument to take in the enormous area of sky.

A more extensive write up of this piece can be found in the blog page Gallery of astronomy art pieces.
