We are very pleased and proud to present the December 2010 Sketching Semi-Finalists in the Imaging/Sketching Contest.

Crater Maurolycus was an excellent object to sketch with a small refractor. I worked on a grater scale than I'm used to (20x20cm). It makes it more easy to put small features on paper. But on the other side, it makes it more difficult to keep on eye on the total sketch. So are the small craters (in crater Maurolycus) drawn to small and not allways on the right possition. The smallest of the craters is only 6 km big! I thinks that's not bad for a small telescope (7cm). This is my most beautiful moonsketch yet.

Crater Maurolycus, 23/12/2009, 17.30-18.30 UT, ETX-70 @ x150, scanned and mirrored, eyepiece-sketch (no processing)

Mars drawn at 23:30UT at an altitude of 40 degrees.

Seeing III with moments of IV.

CM = 259'

Takahashi FS128 refractor plus binovewer at x238.

Notes :
Syrtis Major easily seen to the North of the drawing along with Mare Tyrrhenum and Mare Serpentis. Hellas looked quite dim.
A very obvious bright edge to the limb of Mars to the East of the drawing.
The Hyblaeus extension could occasionally be see when the seeing improved.
Utopia and Casius easily seen to the South of the drawing bordering the Polar ice cap.

This is the best view of Mars I have ever had.

I'd like to add my early Jan image of M36 taken using my 8SE. The sketch was made at the scope and then digitised into Photoshop.



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

Many thanks to all who took part in the contest!

Jef

Congratulations on winning with your sketch of the crater Maurolycus! I for one especially like your cross-hatching technique in your sketching as it adds a great feel of painterly quality to the work. :bow: :bow: :bow:

*All of the sketches entered for the month were very nicely done- I hope to see increased interest in entries and in the voting in the future. - Mark
