Thanks everyone for all the encouragement! I have a few more I want to record and edit as I get the chance.

Markus, you're right, the larger circle seems to help getting a better handle on things under faint light. Although I'll still hit the smaller end of the range for simpler objects or sparse star fields. (That shuttle launch was definitely awesome—we felt really fortunate to have been there to see it.)

Norme, I was thinking about how I'd shoot an ISS sketching session...maybe bungie the camcorder to the scope tube and get a gut wrenching view of all the nudging and bobbing around

Kenrenard, best wishes with the sketches—I'm sure they're getting better and better. I hope the video turns out to be helpful.

Mike, I think -30°C would wear my enthusiasm thin pretty fast—sketching or not You've got my respect for braving that!

Jeremy, I was out to polar align, frame an object, attach camera and get it started. Inside while the images were taken. Out to setup for dark frames back in to warm up. I didn't spend much time at the eyepiece. I just crave a night I can get out and spend a couple hours sketching again. Thanks again for the video.

Hi Jeremy,

You`ve done a great job. It is very helpfull to do the first steps. I`ve learned faster and this method is more efficent than reading your excellent book: astronomical scetching. I hope other sketching videos from your side will follow with themes: nebula, moon, planets...



Best regards

Thanks so much for the video lesson Jeremy. Seeing what you describe as you draw takes the guessing out of how the procedures are done in practice.
