Mars was stable - seeing perfect, but transparency near 0. That view was through thick layer of haze. Seeing allowed me to use even x630 with my small 127 Mak. Not much more details than with x315 tho

Very nice drawing, it looks very similar to the view at the eyepiece, I think you got the colors and contrast just right

Another nice "big" Mars . Your digital drawing technique makes it look like a painting.

S1mas,

Beautiful for selection of colors and fine detail. You have sketched the side of Mars I have yet to see this time around. Well done.

Frank

Nice one, Simas. I like the "glow" around the planet; very realistic.

great sketch and i agree with the others, you manage to keep the subtle colours without overdoing it. very realistic, my sketches look too contrasty now
