  1. Aleksander, that’s a wonderful starsketch. I love the Cascade. I’d like to see you sketch the Coathanger and the Cosmic Question Mark, also.
    Great job!
    Clear skies, pleasant company!

  2. Aleksander,

    Excellent work on the cascade. In your sketch it actually looks to be cascading.

    Frank 🙂
