Camping through all the season was a great experience always learning something new every trip or exploring the best things mountains have to offer and finding out its tough work to survive.

8 hours total time on this sketch.
Took a long time naming the stars and their symbols in the constellations, shading, and layering dots. This is a small fraction of the sky above. The Northstar (Polaris) can be found from the two stars on the bowl part of the Big Dipper (URSA MAJOR) and also Cassopia if you follow the middle star of the W. These two constellations are simple ways to find The Northstar.

Star map of the polaris and a few constellations and galaxies 8 hours of work from naming all the stars to shading.
