I find now that I have begun sketching that I am actually observing more. The object that is being sketched is studied intently for detail and this was something that I wasn't doing when I was just visually observing.
I feel just the same. Last week I was in an astro party. One night while I was sketching, I was listening to others yelling all the time what they view: "NGC 32432 WOW, M 121 WHOAA, NGC 89948 OH WOW, NGC 43243.... etc". This went on the whole night. I only observed 4 objects (actually some more, because some of them were a group of galaxies) the whole night, but hey, I'm sure I've been the one who saw the most details. They only viewed, I observed. That's why I sketch.
