Quote:I actually enjoy looking at digital sketching and astrophotographs. I know how hard they are to generate and admire the effort that goes into creating them.
Sketching is more my cup of tea and I hope to explore all the different ways to generate hard copies in different medias before I get too old to do this.

Quote:Sketching is such a direct link between the observer and the sky. A record if you will of my experience at the eyepiece.
