I don't sketch other than to confirm relative postions of things but both the above are superb to my eyes - they really capture these beautiful subjects under excellent conditions :icon_biggrin:

The 3D effect you have caught on the lunar surface is remarkable :icon_salut:

Thanks for your kind comments  the moon as caught my eye since i started its always around and it never looks the same ,the reason i sketchd from day one is because you look for,longer at what ever it is a dso or the moon ,before i would spend five minutes looking at as many things as i could but never realy looked for,long enough have a great xmass and new year 

I was t going for a 3D effect at the time with the moon surface but when i saw those shadows bing cast by those mountains wow i could not belive how great they looked .

Spectacular sketches Todd.

The Alpine Valley is excellent but M13 is jaw dropping! :thumbsup:

Sadly I've hardly paid any attention to sketching dso's or the Moon this year as I've been preoccupied with the planet's, mainly Jupiter and Mars. In 2016 I've only drawn a couple of dso's and one lunar crater. (Attached)

Only the other day I found an old sketch published by the SPA lunar section years ago which you may find of interest. I've attached it here also as it shows a feature, a rill in this instance, that some experts claimed didn't exist, but it most certainly does, and is easily seen under the right illumination even in a 3" telescope. 

This coming year I'm determined to make the moon my main subject of study as although i regularly observe it, its something i rarely sketch.

Mike

Beautiful sketches Todd and Mike I started my journey into the cosmos last march with the purchase of my first telescope and it's been a very inspiring humbling and beautifully emotional journey for me so far here are a couple of my favourite sketches ☺
