Stöfler and Faraday are a quite impressive pair, and yesterday was not the first time I sketched them. I used my 4 inch refractor for this, magnification was  144x. 

I wished I had have more time, but clouds rolled in.  The highlight at the right side is not finished. I hope you enjoy it even with that flaw.

A really great looking close up sketch of this fine pair.

Well done.

Hello Uwe,

you haven't stopped showing great pencil sketches here - despite your new sketches with chalk.

Thanks for sharing this one with us!
