Hi, Your about vistor # 19455 (counter is currently broken)
Welcome to my collection of astronomy Deep-Sky Sketches.
Deep-Sky Sketches are simply 'drawings' or 'sketches' of
astronomical objects viewed thru a telescope. Sketching is easy
to do and requires no other equipment besides your telescope.
You don't need any fancy art supplies, just pencil & paper.
I started sketching in 1984 and have since sketched all the
Messier objects, many NGC, IC, and lots of other objects.
I've used several types of telescopes over the years, but the
majority of my drawings were done with an 8" dobsonian reflector.
