The dry season in Uganda this year was wet and cloudy, so our opportunities to demonstrate equipment and sketch were very limited. In this post there are two sketches to give you an idea of what we did. The first one (upper sketch) was done in our host's backyard, where we had gathered a few children and adults to see through a binoculars and a scope for the first time. While talking and running back and forth I sketched the top image on the sketch sheet using a low power eyepiece in the Vernon Scope. I was showing the elements we wanted to see on a sketch (name, date, equipment....signature, age....scripture reference...title) along with the basic sketch. The clouds were running across the moon so that is exactly what I drew in front of them.
The bottom image was a day later using a binoculars where the moon was just above a tree. So it showed them a little different arrangement but the same elements.
We used this sheet when we did a review with the gentlemen in charge of the astronomy equipment to encourage them to get started (as Richard has already done).
