You are welcome to use mine as well. I haven't been updating my gallery here on CN, so my latest stuff isn't on it for you to look at. Most of mine are lunar or solar, although I do have some DSO, comets, and planetary sketches as well.

For solar, I have a wide variety of sketches in both white light, projection, and h-alpha.

Cool... Thanks Erika. I always loved your solar work.

If I remember right, didn't you also have a book published? If so, I would like to include that (rather a mention of it) in my presentation if anyone is interested in learning more...

Jeff,

I am sorry that I have not responded sooner but you may use my observations for your club program if needed. You may review my gallery or use any observations posted on the forum. The best of luck with your program.

Carlos

Jeff,

Here is a article I wrote on An Introduction to Planetary Drawing. It shows a number of my early sketches as well as more recent ones. Also it discusses keeping a logbook, selecting drawing material, and the like. There are links from it to comet and deep-sky sketches as well. All of the sketches have notes including the telescope used, magnification, date and time, and seeing and transparency.

I have a Visual Observations page also which are based on notes that I have taken while observing.

Feel free to use these in your presentation.

Hope this helps,

Eric Jamison

Yes, it was a joint effort with Rich Handy, Sol Robbins, Jeremy Perez, David Moody, and myself. Astronomical Sketching: A Step-by-Step Introduction by Springer.

I'm not sure what resolution you need. I've saved most of my collages under 100k so they'd be friendly for websites. The sketches themselves are saved on my hard drive in higher resolutions. If you're doing a Power Point or web-based, the collages work well. If not, let me know if you need higher resolution and I can email them to you.

Here are a few solar ones. I also have a handful of prominence sketch animations that I've done over the past few years that will work with Power Point. And there's also an animation I did for Rich for a lunar eclipse that turned out very nice.
