Hi all,

I'm outfitting my XT10 with a wifi/SkySafari setup and planning on mounting my iPad on the base. Makes sense to use it for other reasons!  I know several of the contributors here are using Procreate with iPad and apple pencil and I'm looking for tips on how to make that work. 

  • Do you sketch in red with a black canvas, then alter colors after?  Other night vision tips?
  • What pencil settings have you found most useful for sketching DSOs vs. planets?
  • I'm planning on getting a telescoping gooseneck to attach to the base - any pros/cons or recommendations?

Thanks in advance!
