Quote:Trying to sketch in the cold conditions is definitely challenging. My hands became so numb (I lack gloves) that I had to give-up on sketching at the eyepiece and instead make crude outline/contour drawings with scribbled notes. I then used these to create the finished sketch indoors. I know it was cold as when I got inside my fingers and outer edges of my hands were sunburnt-red, though it sure wasn't sunny out!
