I was happy to see that the deplacement of this comet is now slower than before so I can sketch in the same field M14 and the comet. To achieve this watercolor I supperpose the landscape on the star field. The star field was sketched at the eyepieces of my Vixen 2x126mm. So the magnification used is not the same for the field of view than this of the landscape.
