  1. Great image, especially considering tiny disc size.
  2. Absolutely stunning image as usual.
  3. Nice image Paul, I too was out with my 130mm Apo and had a similar view, high up in the sky the seeing was actually fairly good.
  4. Hi Paul, lovely crisp image. It was very brave of you to get up in this cold weather, still snow on the ground down here at Knowles Mill. PS. New scope sounds good.
  5. Beautiful image, I cannot remember when I saw a night sky that clear, still raining here!

  9. Great rendition of one of my favourite craters.
  10. A lovely spontaneous sketch.
  11. I really like the latter sketch showing Syrtis Major.
  12. Super sketches Mike, despite using a shaving mirror !
