An excellent observation of Comet Lulin. You have captured this "ghostly interloper" very nicely with it's diffuse spherical coma and fan (ion) tail. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Great sketch of comet Lulin. This is the way I saw it.

What materials were you using? Did you invert the sketch?

@Agnotio: I sketched on normal white paper. For the Comet I used a common HB pencil ans for the star a black fine-liner. I later photographed and inverted the image using Photoshop.
I like photographing better than scanning, because the soft, faint, fuzzy parts appear better than via my scanner.
