The sketches and story are on the blog (address below my signature). If the subject of origins is upsetting, don't go there, because it is the subject of the story.

Roland,

Beautiful sketches of these fine galaxies. With your set-up you get remarkable views and your ability to sketch continues to improve over the many years you have been at it. Excellent write up too.

Frank :)

Thank you folks. Appreciate the comment Frank. Have not had a double object night like that is awhile. And, the subject of the story is always a favorite topic.

Wonderful sketching! The others as well.

Though I have to say, I never would have thought that I would see a post on an astronomy forum saying the the moon is less than 6,000 years old, just the clear disregard for basic logic, such as dinosaurs and humans coexisting, doesn't sound familiar does it? It's baffling to me how educated people of science can hold such outlandish opinions. This is not meant to entice anything, I think the bible has some wonderful and rich stories coupled with an imaginative history, but to claim that this is fact, when we know better is discomforting to say the least.
