Orion Nebula 34 viewsSketch done from my back porch in Holladay, Utah, using colored pencil on black paper. Viewed through a C8.
7 Nights of Jupiter23 viewsSeven nights spent at a C8 sketching Jupiter and four moons. Skies were covered in thin clouds on the 5th night, but I was still able to make out the planet and one moon through the haze. Done in colored pencil on black paper.
Craters on the Moon34 viewsLunar craters...not sure which ones. Sketched with colored pencil on black paper.
Light Pollution207 viewsNot exactly an astronomical sketch, but maybe a comment on an issue important to us all. Colored pencil on black paper.
Waning Daylight Moon46 viewsWaning moon sketched in colored pencil on light blue paper at 2:00 pm on 5/5/13...just before it dipped behind the trees in my backyard in Oberlin. The image is displayed as I saw it through the eyepiece, so the features are upside down. I believe the dark spot at lower right is Grimaldi crater, while the lighter blemish just above it is Schickard. The lower portion appeared darker than the upper because of Oceanus Procellarum.
