I keep going with the Crescent Nebula in Cygnus

 

EAA observation of august 29th, with SiOnyx Aurora night cam, afocal mount on a Dobsonian 16", average to good conditions of seeing and transparency. Drawn on black Canson paper with white and grey dry pastels. Formatting and redrawing of the stars with photoshop.

 

Clear skyes,

Francis,

 

Very nice sketching on the Crescent nebula. Sketch reminds me of my first good look at this nebula.

 

Frank :)

Beautiful sketch, although it confused me. Looks like 8 inch OIII view I had the other night under 21.35 sky. In 12 inches it was much starker and with more detail (OIII) again. I thought EAA would add a mass of detail as compared with non-EAA views.

You know, It depends a lot of the sky quality. In my case it was'nt the best one that night undecided.gif

Nice work, the drawing looks very natural and I can see that you spent time on it to make it look good.

Great sketch! I recently snagged this with my 6" refractor under excellent, very dark skies.

Very nice sketch indeed.  I love the level of detail and structure you managed to capture.  I also especially like the subtle variation in nebula brightness on the left side of the image.  You really get the feeling of that star illuminating the gas.  Also the diffraction spikes are a nice touch.
