The Foot of the Cross

Acrux
Acrux

On April first at 23:00 hs. in La Matanza, Buenos Aires, Argentina, I sketched Acrux, the brightest star in the constellation called “Southern Cross”, “Crux”, etc. This star is also known, in religious terms, as The Foot of the Cross, due to obvious location reasons.

It’s a nice double-star system done in white paper, with graphite 4B, 2B and HB2 pencils; after edited with Photoshop tool, while observing with a Newtonian SW 150/750 f5 telescope.

I liked the final results, so hope you like it too!

  1. Tomas,

    This is a fine sketch of the double star Acrux!
    This is to far South for me in Norway.
    Nice post!
