Randolph Jay

Here is the sketch of Plato on the waning moon that I did on November 22nd from Sarasota Florida.  I used a Skywatcher 90mm Mak-Cass with a Televue 9mm lens.  The sketch was done on Artagain black sketch paper, Conte white and black pastel crayons and pencils and some white charcoal.  I used a cell phone camera and then created the black oval mask using Gimp.  I am posting the labelled version of this sketch.  The labels were also added using Gimp.  What a sight!  Unfortunately the next two nights/ mornings were clouded out or I would have done more early morning observing.
