Hi all,

tonight, the grey clouds which have been around for almost a week suddenly cleared up. So I put the small MiniDob out for a quick sketch of the waxing crescent moon.

Here it is:

Hi all,

thanks for the feedback! :laugh:

@Dazzyt: Once you upgrade to whatever larger telescope, don't give the FirstScope away. It's a quick-grab scope if there's not enough time for the big one to be set up or cooled down.

Clear Skies!

That is indeed my plan Achim, it's a great little scope for easy objects, the moon is brill for it. Besides, the upgrade is a few months away yet as I save up the dosh... [emoji3]

Clear skies!

FirstScope (soon to be upgraded - TBC)

Hi Siriusmeg & DazzyT,

thanks a lot for your feedback! Always happy to post my sketches here.

@Siriusmeg: The textured effect in fact isn't created just by me. This is "the default" when using the chalk on the black cardbox ;)

Clear skies!

Achim :laugh:
