I am pleased to announce the winner of the April 2009 Cloudy Nights Imaging and Sketching Contest - markseibold!

Posted Image

I observed the moon with the public on ISAN April 4 and 5 2009 with use of a Nexstar 5i. I returned home for solitary observation through my 10.1" Newtonian; 32mm Plossl and 9.7mm Super Plossl eyepieces with medium ~ good seeing conditions; light breeze at 51 degrees F, from 6 UT ~ 8 UT April 5 to produce this large 22" X 30" multiple pastel impression on black Stonehenge paper with various off-white, blue and grey dry pastel chalks. Several areas of the terminator and surface areas were rendered in detail with medium high magnification at 180X; finally adding the artists conception from the surface of the moon at bottom. -Mark

Thanks John and Brent

I am considering a series format in which I might duplicate the same triptych (if I can call it that) with the whole moon and several close-up details in the sky from actual eyepiece observation as here, then adding the final lunar-scape as a different surface feature again in each successive art-work.
