Some asterisms new
      #4529302 - 04/19/11 02:24 PM Attachment (39 downloads)

Yesterday it was clear but Full Moon was too low in the sky to sketch, Saturn was dancing in the EP and chasing galaxies was impossible... so I sketched some asterisms with my 12" (@ x92). Hope you like them.

STAR 19 aka Broken Engagement Ring (FOV 25')
STAR 20 aka Stargate, great! (FOV 25')
STAR 22 aka Mini-Coathanger, no competition for the real Coathanger (FOV 35')
Picot 1 aka Napoleon's Hat, just funny (FOV 35')

and an asterism from one week ago:
STAR 1 aka Diamond Ring (x34, FOV 70')

Jef,

Very well done. There is always something worth sketching on every clear night. You just proved it.

Nicely done Jef, maybe one day you may be lucky and a find an extra star shining in one of the asterisms.

Tom, Frank, Carlos and Rutilus, thanks for the nice words.

I have the idea to add the figure next to the stars, like the old skymaps did with the constellations...
