Hi fellow sketchers!

NEAF will be including a sketching workshop this year plus Alan Traino and the guys at Lunt Solar Systems will also provide several narrowband solar scopes for an additional live sketching workshop outside near the annual solar party hosted there. I'll be conducting both and it would be great to see some of you there if you were interested in attending. Supplies will be provided for both activities.


Between now and then, I'll be updating my Power Point sketching presentation and would like to know if I could use some of your sketches for variety and to show the different techniques, medias, and targets. Of course, credit will be given for your sketches.

If you have specific sketches that you like, either pm me with links to them or provide them here. I'll be covering both night and day skies. Otherwise, I can just chose ones that I need from your galleries if you provide me with a link for them.

Thanks everyone, and thanks to those of you that emailed or pm'd me. Should be a great presentation and a good time at NEAF. I've helped out with the solar party there in the past, but am really looking forward to the workshop and the live sketching activity with the Lunt scopes. Here's hoping we get some clear skies that weekend!

Erika --

Feel free to use any of mine. There are a few in my gallery here, but I don't update that very often. You can find more on www.rokeby.ie/observatory/ .

Thanks very much everyone. I've got a few sponsors for supplies too and everyone will get a packet to use during the workshop and then take home.

CNers have asked about a donation box for Cloudy Nights over the years, so here you go. Donation is not required by any means, so please enjoy your stay.
