My question is how does everyone get those great looking sketches to be so perfect every time?
Well it is called "digital sketching" so you get to edit your work as much as you like until it is "perfect"
Is there a template that is available, one that has the text fields for the object, description etc and of course the circle for the drawing available to download?
I think for Americans the best bet is to use the ones at Jeremy Perez's website: http://www.perezmedi.../templates.html
And if you're looking for a template, why not make your own? This way you surely get all in there you want! Creating the circle with a black edges takes less than a minute in Photoshop. For example like this: http://www.kolumbus....anta/Circle.gif
Then add the fields you want and voilá! Perfect fit for your ever needs!

Object info (RA, DEC, magnitude, size etc...)
Date and time
Field of view
Filter (if any)
Visuality of the object
Altitude of the object
Description of the object
PS. I sometimes use "general sky conditions" in my electric form to log aurora glow etc.

Thanks for the other info, that will help to ensure the sketches include any secondary info.
