The grey paper sketches are wonderful.
I also like that winter circle sketch from your most recent trip to the Philippines.

Excellent observation of Julius Caesar and Rimae Ariadaeus over the Mare Vaporum region of the Moon. The gray paper adds to the observation, in my opinion. Your observations of the Beehive Cluster (M44) and the Winter Circle are also excellent. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
I have attached an image of this region of the Moon obtained on April 11, 2011 (05:36 U.T.) with my 9" F/13.5 Maksutov-Cassegrain and a hand-held iPhone! I hope that you like it.

I had been wondering if I would prefer to draw on black or white paper, and the thought occurred to me that I might try drawing on grey paper, I have to say I love the drawings you have produced on Grey backgrounds and I will definitely give it a go now.

I have not worked with any other media than white paper. I believe that I shall look to expand to grey and black as well.

Thank you for the compliment on my iPhone image of Moon. It was taken for the fun of it but it came out well. I am impressed with the amount of detail recorded. The best of luck to you and Linda.
