For the last 2 nights I have made some deep sky sketches with my home build 60 mm F/6,9 achromatic refractor. It's made out of a 20-year-old Novalux 60/415 lens and some spare parts from various other scopes. The chromatic abberation is horrific om Moon and planets, but this tiny telescopes does give me surprisingly pleasant views of some of the brighter deep sky objects. It made me so enthousiastic I want to sketch evering I see through it! I also have a 12,5" Dobsonian but sometimes, when time is short and weather is unpredictable, bigger is not always better!
All sketches are made under a suburban sky. M8 was only 15 degrees above the southern horizon when I made the drawing.

Leo Triplet (M65, M66, NGC3628).

Individual galaxies sketched on different nights through a 16"SCT at 175X (M66 and NGC3628) and 16"Mak at 150X (M65), with the field stars and galaxy positions sketched through a 4"APO at 67X. Sketches scanned and resized to a matching scale, and then printed and combined using paste-up and backlighting to allow tracing and copying to the final, composite sketch.

Daler Rowney HB pencil on A3 cartridge paper, scanned and inverted in Photoshop.



Please note that voting will conclude on June 8th at Midnight EST.

Many thanks to all who took part in the contest!

Roel,

Congratulations to you on a beautiful winning sketch. The sketch you outpolled was one of the best galaxy sketches I have seen. That is a testament to how well you did. Good luck in the finals.
