Thanks again for the compliments. I hope the template helps cut time involved and makes everybody's sketched observations easier.

It is a pencil sketch which I prefer because it is simple. I used 4H and HB pencils. Mostly 4h. Ebony pencil for the globe's shadow on rings and a white pencil for the C ring. The filter I used dimmed the image a bit, so the C ring brightness dimmed a lot.

The filter I used was sent to me for Beta testing.

Thanks again,

Dang it! I am missing Saturn. Traveling.

Great sketches, Sol and Ivano. Nice detail in the cloud bands, boys.

Hi Sol,

Very nice sketch of Saturn. I have noticed it rising in the eastern sky but have not had a change to observe it yet.

Best,

Eric
