These two got buried in the planetary forum - which has the details. Anyway, these are done in Gimp and labeled in Paint. Seeing was 5-7 Pickering, damp and 60f, light high altitude haze. A rewarding view. Hope you like.

Pete,

Very nice sketches, that is about the way I see them (not quite as good as you have captured them). Your colors are good match too. And Triton - great capture there.

Frank :)

Albeit, they re a boring presentation but its a blast seeing them. Tiny as tiny as they are even at 500x, I gave them some generous drawing scale. Thanks Man - always appreciate your work!

Very realistic Pete, Triton was a good catch.
