Hi everyone. This week, I sketched the Messier Marathon from my property. I posted this in the DSO forum if anyone is interested. link

Good luck with your marathons for those of you running it this weekend!

OMG!!! You're... er... either a pencil genius or barking mad! You inspire me but not up to the point that I'd want to follow your example though. Given my drawing speed it'd take me a year! Obviously you only made very fast and minimal sketches, but still your work, or should I say 'opus', is amazing. My compliments!

Peter

Amazing work and great advice for all nighters. Harvard's book is one of my favorites and should be used by all, his home made charts are great for year round use. Your blog is a great read.

Truly humbled - what an achievement - especially the patience for the clusters!

Thank you very much, everyone. It's been great fun. I did a second run with out club's event this weekend. We got clouded out by half past midnight, but I managed 42 sketches between 2022-0023 ST that night and even nabbed M74! 2013 March 16/17th Messier Sketching Marathon report

Great job Erika. I was happy to observe about 40 Messiers in one night never mind sketch them. That is a great project.

Bravo
Ken

Great job. You've inspired me. I probably will not try to sketch a Messier Marathon, just eventualy get around to sketching the entire Messier and Caldwell lists.
