  1. Krzysiek,

    The comet is ok.
    It’s a pity the “dark ghosts” attack Your sketch. 😉


  2. Krzysiek,

    The comet was at its best most of the month of Febuary. The tail was a hit or miss depending on transparency. I think you have a beautiful capture here.

    Frank 🙂

  3. Very good sketch, Krzysiek. Realistic view of the Lulin comet. I am waiting for another great sketching under Your pencil.
