A "Covid19"-free hello to the forum,

 

if you should minimize the "social contacts" this virus days, I had today for the first time since New Year "contact" with an eyepiece at my telescope.
So far I have not been able to observe, mostly for weather reasons. Tonight unfortunately moved clouds through the sky again and again.

Now the sky is "tight". But I could still observe and draw the comet Atlas on black drawing paper with white pastel pencils. The clouds delayed the
observation and so I could not all field stars get caught. So, it´s only an overview sketch.

 

Thanks for watching, Jens

Nice! I just read a blog entry about this comet, which may become naked-eye visible this Spring:
