Here are the the April 2013 Sketching Semi-Finalists in the Cloudy Nights Imaging/Sketching Contest.
I'd like to have another go at the contest. This time with my drawing of M46 and its lovely little planetary NGC2438. It took me about two hours behind the eyepiece to make this sketch (pencil on white paper) and perhaps twice as much elaborating it on my PC. I tried as well as I could to render the 3D-effect of this magnificent and rich open cluster, especially since I observed it with my 2" binoviewer and a couple of 24mm Explore Scientific 82° eyepieces. I hope you like it...
And I'll submit yet another Panstarrs, as I sketched it at dawn, april 5th, 2013, 5:00, while observing with 250mm f/5 Newtonian, and ES82 18mm Eyepiece.
Please vote for your favorite sketch to send to the finals. Voting will conclude on May 8th at Midnight ET.
Many thanks to all who took part in the contest!
