Looked thru the sketing forum here and compiled all the Mars sketches people did so far for February observations and put them in one picture. Lots of great work here

Bill,

Thank you for putting together this fine montage of Mars observations made in February by the members of this excellent forum. They all show a good amount of detail. The observers posting these observations should be proud of their efforts.

Carlos

Bill, what a super idea! Looks great as screenbackground on my computer. It's great fun to see all the different sketching techniques next to each others. And thanks for putting my sketch in too...

Can you put this one in the Sketching/imaging contest???? I'm sure we will beat those astrophoto's in the final!!!

Over the weekend I'm going to go back to January as well and collect what is there and add it to this so it becomes the "Faces of the 2010 Opposition" It is cool to also see the individual interpretations as well. Much more interesting than photos IMO which have little personality generally.

Thx! Just copied files back from early January and looks like if I take 1 pic from each person we'll have 24 pics in the next composit. That's a 5x5 grid with an empty spot in the middle. perhaps I should put a real photo in the center position or a S&T Simulation or leave it empty or with title text??

If you have the time it will be nice if all the Mars sketches will have the same orientation (south up?).

Hi to everybody, this is my first post here and I do not know anybody but (for a long time) Carlos and his jaw-dropping drawings. I attach here a sketch for future albums (great idea by the way!!) I made on January 8 with a 10'' Clark refractor at Bethany, CT. I am particularly bad at colour drawings, so tips are welcomed.

Ivano

p.s. can I attach more than 1 image?

Ivano

Welcome to the Cloudy Nights Sketch Forum! Excellent sketch!

I'm sure Bill will include yours eventually as he adds to this great 2010 Gallery Display of Mars. Thanks again Bill!
(That is an early image of mine that was later refined if you would like to use the later finished image, it is at my gallery 1st page now>
My CN Gallery

*Ivano: You can attach more images through a personal gallery link in CN but not more than one at 100 kb max for each post in the forum (so you can continue to add to this particular post with one image 100kb max at each posted entry line.)
