  1. Your dot technique is amazing, it's the first astro sketch I see using such a technique, the result is high.
  2. Very nice flame Acr (: What kind of paper are you using? I want to try a new kind of paper myself this one looks rough, I like that. Can it be used with graphite pencils do you think ?
  3. N3ptune


    Very original I like it too.
  4. I have another star scene from last night, the Procyon region.. ,that is, Canis minor and about 1.55 deg of sky. (There is an error, the FOV is not 60 deg but 68 deg) Beautiful place..
  5. Thanks Ruud, my motivation is good these days, to sketch. I found another one small one to sketch tonight if I ever get the motivation to get up. My friend would be into that obviously, naming objects and releasing certificates lol, Me, I like the NGC names, absolutely no vision, no ambition.
  6. Pretty powerful sketch you have there Mariosi, it's very impressive, you caught the cloud texture very well, amazing. 24mm Explore Scientific F.O.V. 68° This is currently my favorite eyepiece too.
  7. Thanks for you comments (; yes it's a nice sector
  8. Hello! here is a small scene but of a lovely little cluster my friend found and he insisted on renaming it with his own name, hence, the Alex cluster. For me this was my first serious trip in Canis Major and we saw some very unique stuff there starting from Sirius and down. This sketch is not much but the cluster itself is a nice one with a bright white star in the middle surrounded by many faint stars. After a couple of minutes, I could count about 27 stars in my 8" Newtonian and a bit more then that with my friends 10", more then 35 stars including the averted vision ones. He was using
  9. Your moon sketches are beautiful and I agree with you about the therapeutic effects of sketching and the pleasure you get when you get absorbed into it. I might do it tonight.. Inspiring Thanks for sharing the 2 great sketches
  10. Hello! this is the image I wanted to show about the various FOV of eyepieces. (Colors can't be seen at the eyepiece of course) From right to left: ES30mm 82d, ES34mm 68d, ES24mm 82d and ES24mm 68d.
  11. I agree why replace something if it's still working. I still use Windows XP for some software unrelated to astronomy. ?
  12. I did a comparative exercise between 4 different ES eyepieces (using 245mm x 1270mm telescope) on the great nebula in Orion, Stellarium can be helpful to test that. From right to left: 30mm 82d, 34mm 68d, 24mm 82d and 24mm 68d. Link deleted If this can be of any help.
  13. I think that's a wise choice for the first low power, a ES24mm 82d. I use a F5 too and a coma corrector not required for me.
  14. I like your sketch too JackCooke, very good choice of target for your first one. I can't see the nebulosity around the stars myself but I always notice a blanket of something covering the view when I look at M45, the background is foggy. It's a misery. It's a great target.. thanks for sharing your sketch and motivation here.
