So about a week ago I bought myself a sketch pad and last night was the first clear night I could take it out with my scope. I sketched Gassendi and the area around it. I will post a scan of the sketch later. I'm pretty happy with the result for a first try. The next time we have a clear sky I will try another target.

Good, Zach. Look forward to seeing a scan of your first sketch. Just attach it to this thread that says you did it ... I am sure you will get some comments to encourage you. Roland

I asked my wife to scan the image, but her scanner is not working. So I'll scan it at work tomorrow.

Tonight looks like a no-go for observing, due to a sandstorm here.

Zach,

I look forward to seeing your first sketch. Here's hoping your sandstorm goes away soon.

Ohh, Zach, you're such a tease! Just kidding.

I hope you get your image posted soon, I'm not sure how many can take the anticipation... :grin:

Do you have a digital camera? You could take a picture and post that in the mean time.
