This sketch has been made in annual deepsky-meeting in Artjärvi thru a 16" Meade LX 200. The weather was average but there was a huge amount of moist in the air. Also the correction lens has dewed up. NGC 7008 is pretty pathetic in these skies. I have seen it much better earlier. In addition of the shape, only some brighter areas were visible thru an UHC filter.
