Hi,

I present to you a sketch of the comet Panstarrs realized with my Skywatcher Equinox 80 mm at magnification 38x. This sketch was made from Marseille (France). I am also able to see with the naked eye the same night of march 20th, but since I've had bad weather ...

Thank you for your comments!
My sketch was done with pencil black and white at the base. Then I colorized and processed it with Paint Shop Pro sofware. In particular, I softened the pencil strokes for smoothing.

I made another sketch with the same technique but it is older :

Bravo Laurent ! I had already seen your previous one, maybe I prefer the color of the first one... 'Cause looking in my refractor I feel that PanStarrs color looks like gold-yellow. I'm not sure it's because of the sunset sky background. I will cross check tonight or tomorrow. It seems that the weather in our area is improving.
See you soon Laurent !
