Holy jeepers, the difference in artistic talent between that and I would I could do is embarrassing.
I'd be proud of myself with one your 'lets get started' pencil scribbles.

Thanks for the kind comment! As I recall, this one involved a lot of powdered graphite applied with cotton buds onto white paper, then inverted and shamelessly manipulated in GIMP to get to the final result. It's a lot of fun trying to produce something that very closely matches what you saw at the eyepiece, or at least what you think you saw!
