I am pleased to announce the winner of the April 2011 Cloudy Nights Imaging and Sketching Contest - Sketching Forum's Finalist - maroubra_boy!

Posted Image

My submission is of my recent sketch of the Eta Carina Nebula done using my 17.5" dob from my home in Sydney Australia. I had posted this sketch earlier this month in the sketching forum.

This was by far my most challenging sketch to undertake. It is also my most satisfying one.

That it was done under the light polluted skies of Sydney makes me wonder what a repeat undertaking from a dark site will reveal additionally.

The supermassive star that lends its name to the nebula, Eta Carina, is the bright, reddish star approximately in the centre of the sketch.

Object: NGC 3372, Eta Carina Nebula
Scope: 17.5" dob, push-pull
Gear: 35mm Masuyama eyepiece, 57X, OIII flter
Date: April 8, 2011
Location: Sydney Australia
Media: White pastel, white and black charcoal pencils, white chinagraph, white and coloured inks on A4 black paper.


To all of you who took the time to stop by and vote for your favorite submission - thank you so much! Your participation really makes the contest!

To all the contestants - every one of your submissions is worthy of winning. Congratulations to all of you on a job done very well indeed!

maroubra_boy, congratulations on your win! Your winning image will be posted on the front page of the CN website for all to enjoy!

Charlie
