The mid-south star gaze was in its last night but I was weary of the crowds of scopes and folks after 4 nights of observing. I crept away to a spot right by our camp location and set up a manual scope to catch M68 and then Omega Centauri, which I cannot see in Virginia under most conditions and at most locations. So the page is a series of quick sketches -- all from a manual mount with a C8 on one side and the 4 inch refractor on the other. The sketches are either eyes-alone or a drastically reduced video astro setting. The sketch you see is inverted since I did the original with plain copy paper and a #2 pencil. Sometimes it's just a pleasure to whip a scope around to grab things and study them with quick sketches. This was one of those nights.
...by the word of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. Psalm 33:6
