Quote:Michael, I very much enjoyed seeing your presentation slides, a very wonderful and educational astronomy outreach program! There must have been a lot of discussion and questions about astro-sketching from the two classes. What was the most asked question from the sessions?
Quote:From what I see of your presentation, you covered the topic very nicely. Can you tell me how long it took you to get through the slide presentation? And then the follow up sketching exercise on M-6?
Quote:What kind of feedback did you get from those that sketched M-6?
Quote:Sorry for all the questions but it is interesting that you had two groups of 20-25 folks that found participating in an astronomical sketching exercising worthwhile. This is fascinating to me. Very few of the observers I have known would ever consider sketching what they see at the eyepiece.Excellent work Michael, your efforts at this sketching workshop are to be commended. Congratulations!

Quote:I am very sorry to hear about Steve. He was a wonderful guy, funny and hard working and caring. He, with the help of the other members of the Central Appalachian Astronomy Club and the Kanawha Valley Astronomy Society, was the prime mover in organizing events at the Green Bank Star Quest, making it a great success year after year.In particular, Steve was very supportive of astrosketching, designing and redesigning a template for sketchers to use (which was available at the registration area) and encouraging me to make my presentation.Steve enjoyed all aspects of astronomy and was very proud of his new Lunt solar telescope which he received just before this year's Star Quest.My thoughts and prayers are with Steve's family. I'll miss him.
