Excellent art work as well!
Thanks for the great tutorial! Looking forward to seeing more! PS: I loved that Space Shuttle launch! Must have been incredible to see that live.

Wow, so well done and informative. Now I can visualize how DSO sketches are done. Thank you so much for your effort in this video.
Well, honestly I prefer solar sketching, much easier to do and require less equipment. I really don't know if one day I'll go for DSO sketching ? But its fun to see how to proceed.

Wonderful! This is the best way so far to show folks that are not sitting in a room with you how to sketch astronomical targets. Beautifully done.

I came across your belt of venus site a few months ago. Great sketches. I finally decided a few weeks ago to get some supplies a blending stump, pencils, skecthbook and eraser and try to sketch. Using a CD for the eyepiece circle. I've completed about 10 sketches. They are not of your skill level but it has helped my observing. This video will help alot I was always putting the pencil down on the paper and blending in place which made it way too dark. This was some great advice.
Clear Skies and keep sketching. Looking forward to see more of your work.

Markus, you're right, the larger circle seems to help getting a better handle on things under faint light. Although I'll still hit the smaller end of the range for simpler objects or sparse star fields. (That shuttle launch was definitely awesome—we felt really fortunate to have been there to see it.)
Norme, I was thinking about how I'd shoot an ISS sketching session...maybe bungie the camcorder to the scope tube and get a gut wrenching view of all the nudging and bobbing around
Kenrenard, best wishes with the sketches—I'm sure they're getting better and better. I hope the video turns out to be helpful.
Mike, I think -30°C would wear my enthusiasm thin pretty fast—sketching or not You've got my respect for braving that!

You`ve done a great job. It is very helpfull to do the first steps. I`ve learned faster and this method is more efficent than reading your excellent book: astronomical scetching. I hope other sketching videos from your side will follow with themes: nebula, moon, planets...
