    The Smithsonian Air and Space should display CN monthly sketching contest winners. The art works I see here is nothing short of spectacular and captures the beauty and imagination beyond our little planet.

     

     The problem with this would be that the entire world would know about CN and that would create numerous problems and probably ruin our community.

    That 10” ATM telescope gives better views than my Mewlon 210. I have compared them.

    Wonderful drawing!
