I would like to share my sketches with all of you, I have lots of them in
my notebook and when I discovered the ASOD site recently I was surprised and happy
to find it. Its wonderful, a really good idea.
I made this sketch of three moon craters of the southern region with graphite
pencil on white paper, three craters are hand made without processing after,
just painted looking directly through the ocular and with red light. They
took me almost an hour aproximately.
The equipment used: Meade 8″ SC. Date:
3 Jun 2006; Moon age: 8 days.
The night were very good conditions, I was on top of a mountain called Alto
Rey in Guadalajara, Spain.
All my drawings are almost first drafts in the place of observation, the
best I try to do them again and then more good and after change to negative
to get them more real. I havent still practice with photoshop, but I will
All my drafts are kept tenderly because they are the result of the night,
all filled with annotations and details by hand,
I hope you enjoy!
Thanks a lot.
