I never sketched at the EP before this was my first attempt.
I was out viewing Aug 12 from 11:00PM until Aug 13th 2:30AM.
During this time frame I was in and out of the house viewing, there was clouds and then there wasn't lol. It's been oddly here lately.
Anyhow I was viewing many objects in the area with and with out filters. About 1:30AM on Aug 13th I came across a star that looked oddly, (note: not as bright as it was last night) I had no idea what it was, I tried looking it up on my charts and from the way it looked and the area I was at, there was nothing! So I just said I don't know lol, so I kept on observing the skies for about another hour.
Last night I came on CN's and someone posted about the NOVA, I checked it out and noticed it was in the same location that I seen the star. So I took out my Dob and let it cool down and was looking through my Bino's and could totally see it.
I finally got to my Dob to check it out, this had to have been what I seen that AM the other day. Only this time it was MUCH brighter, I used the same EP and seen the same stars around the area. I never sketched at the EP before so I said hmmm, I'm going to give it a shot so I grabbed a sheet or white paper and pencil and put it on a clip board.
The skies were good, in the time frame I sketched this was done in a Red/Orange zone. I took it in photoshop and did a fast job with it and shared it on CN's. But I got a few comments saying that MAY not be it, I was kinda bummed about that. Anyhow, today someone posted a link to a new shot of it and I looked it over and it sure looked like my sketch. So who knows, what do I know LOL.. I just look at the stars with my telescope! Below on the next post is the 2 images side by side so you can check it out.
But anyways I messed around with my sketch today and tried cleaning it up better, please note this is my first time LOL. It was fun to do and I will probably start sketching more.
Here is the fixed up sketch:
