Collection of Sketching Forum's 'How To' Threads
      #901642 - 04/06/06 11:48 AM

The following are links to threads within the Sketching Forum that contain information regarding sketching tools and techniques as they apply specifically to astronomical observations. These tutorials represent a great deal of work by their creators, and are representative of the admirable generosity that characterizes the Cloud Nights forum.

If you have an interest in sketching what you see at the eyepiece, check these threads first. Many common questions and problems are dealt with in considerable detail by these tutorials. Give these techniques a try, and then come share the results.
