Feb10 CN Imaging/Sketching Contest Poll!
      #3655464 - 03/01/10 10:07 PM

We are very pleased and proud to present the February 2010 Sketching Semi-Finalists in the Imaging/Sketching Contest.

nunciusaustralis:



Its very south . Ill take a chance. tnx



S1mas:



Hi,
here is my entry.



JayKSC:



I am very happy with my wide-field sketch of the M42 region.



starquake:



NGC2392 - Eskimo or Clown Face Nebula

Right ascension: 7h 30m Declination: 20 53'
Constellation: Gemini
Date/time: 2010.02.21 20:00 UT
Equipment: 12" f/5 Newtonian
FoV: 11' Magnification and filter(s): 300x + UHC filter(s)
Seeing: 7/10 Transparency: 3/5
Normal copier paper and HB pencil, then reversed on computer.

UHC filter enhanced the intensity of the inner bubble, but otherwise it's not neccessary to observe this large and bright planetary.



dweller25:



Here is Mars drawn on the 5th February 2010.

It had been cloudy all day and then cleared up around 8PM

All drawings made with a Takahashi FS128 refractor at x238

A - 21:15UT, CM=297', seeing = II.

B - 22:20UT, CM=313', seeing = III.



markseibold:



A pastel sketch 19" X 25" [with the moons disc drawn at 12 ] on black Strathmore Artagain pastel paper with use of various soft to hard pastel chalks on December 26th 2009 at 5UT ~ 9UT, partly produced from direct eyepiece observation over 2 to 3 hours, then finished indoors with photos taken from the eyepiece to produce a detailed close-up of the Sinus Iridum feature at the terminator. An artists conception was added at bottom as a final touch for a total work time of 4 ~ 5 hours. Observation was through my 10.1 inch f/4.5 Newtonian telescope with use of 32mm, 12mm, 9.7mm Super Plossls and 6mm Orthoscopic eyepieces. Ambient outdoor temperature in the 750 ft elevation foothills, west of the Cascades and Mount Hood, 30 miles east of Portland Oregon was approximately 34 degrees F. Wind gusting to 20 ~ 30 mph and subsiding to still at times. Seeing conditions were not optimum but I was intent to produce as overdue for a new lunar sketch over the holiday.

Please note that voting will conclude on March 8th at Midnight EST.

Many thanks to all who took part in the contest!

Simas

Congratulations on your win with a beautiful sketch of The Pleiades, M45. Your rendering has a photo-realistic appearance! Good luck in the finals.

Thanks also to all the other sketchers who entered as they are all deserving of praise.

Mark

Congrats, S1mas. I love how you've captured the stars and nebulosity - very realistic and inspiring.
