I am a noob when it comes to star sketching (heck, I’m a noob at astronomy period); however, I recently purchased an Orion Astroview 90mm telescope with this type of artwork in mind. This evening, after several attempts at splitting some doubles for the Sissy Haas project, I settled in for an easier set of objects. My method at the EP is to simply scribble down basic placements and notes on magnitude, etc. to be later re-“drawn” using Paint.NET.
I am presenting this with the hope that more experienced artists will offer unbiased critique and suggestions for improvement. While my intent is to portray “realistic” renditions of what I actually see through my eyepiece, at this early stage I am not so much concerned with technical perfection (measurements, etc) as I am with someone who is familiar with these objects to be able to recognize them when they view one of my sketches.
That being said, can you recognize what I have “drawn” here?
