Comets

Recommended Posts

Prompted by a post by Grumpy Martian regarding instruments for comet searching, I sifted through a few past sketch books and found these! In no particular order!!

Lovely set of sketches Mike. They bring back some happy memories. Oh for another Hale-Bopp.

Been a while since we had a really decent comet.  Hale-Bopp remains my all time favourite......so far!

And I had a 28" waist and hair. It seems like only yesterday!

These are awesome!! Having just started with sketching, I have hopes that in 35 years I’ll be able to look back on a stack of sketches half as brilliant. Great stuff!

I'm really glad you've started sketching some of your observations. It really is a great way to record what you see, and if you're lazy like me, you'll find it far more pleasant to muse over your sketches than read copious notes. A picture speaks a thousand words, so the saying goes! Plus you'll begin to see more, because your concentration is heightened! :icon_biggrin:
