Made this a 16" dobson.

Man, this is something I really like. Wonderful art you have done. What a huge amount of details. Incredible !!!
I don't recall someone else have done one crater at a time like you did. Honestly, your idea is so great, if I would start sketching the moon, I think this way would be my favorite one.
Bravo mon ami.

It has been a while since you posted sketches here. I see you are still doing the highest quality work.
Excellent work as usual.I can still picture in my mind that sketch you did near the end of 2006 of Eratosthenes.

I agree with Andrev. These sketches are unique and beautiful (and another reason why I won't be sketching the moon anytime soon).

Jef, I also ordered the books you are talking about. They will be my Christmas gift.

"years of experience" ? I do not know... The French Chinese painter Zao Wou Ki used to say: " it takes a very short time to make a painting, but years of a life before that..."
But well, I am not Zao Wou Ki...

Beautiful sketch work!
You have inspired me to start lunar sketching again.
*And oh:shocked:, I just remembered to comment in this late edit, that I am being asked to lecture again soon for college level students, and this will include a brief mention of The Cloudy Nights Sketching Forums to show the students my contributions here and others in astronomy sketch artist works in my lecture.
With your approval, I would like to include your recent lunar crater post here Pierre to confirm the professionalism of astronomy artists sketch works.

Now you can have a look inside the book: http://www.astrodess...om/apercu.html. It looks really impressive! A lot to look at and a lot to read (if you understand French ).
I ordered the book Astrodessin, so I can admire more of your beautiful work soon!
