Hi,

This was not exactly my first sketch, but close to it. It was the second deep-sky sketch that I ever made.

It was of the Orion Nebula and I made it on November 9th-10th, 1974, from 11:30 PM - 12:45 AM.

I was using Edmund 4" F/10 reflector. Magnification 45x.

In my observing notes I recorded: "A beautiful glowing object.". Although the nebula appeared green in color I used yellow to represent it in the sketch.

Clear Skies,

Did my first last Sunday. I'll have to scan it in. Here is the MSPaint I did for my MSWord log. My wife and I agreed on a telescope for Christmas. We have had it for 2 weeks.

Strange idea, but I like strange ideas...
Here my very first one. I did it 1976, Feb 5th.
That was linked with the result of a grazing observation.

I'm not 100% certain this was the first sketch I ever made, as I had been into astronomy for 12 years when I made this one. But it's the oldest sketch I find. It shows open cluster M34 sketched in Dec. 1989 with my brand new Vixen 90/1300 refractor at 65x. I inverted it after scanning.

This has been a fun exercise, trying to locate a "first" drawing. I suspect this is one my first... drawn during a college physics project, using the school's Questar. I actually got course credit for this. 1973 Mars was outstanding, easy to draw in small scopes. I fudged the polar cap, it was probably not as symmetrical as shown.
