HI ASTROARTISTS,ALL O.K.?I’M FINE IN THIS MOMENT.YESTERDAY, FINALLY,AFTER TWO DAYS OF BAD WEATHER,RAIN ,WIND,THUNDERSTORM AND LANDSLIDES,ONE GOOD EVENING FOR OBSERVATION.I SEE THE MOON CRESCENT AND JUPITER AT EAST AND I SAY:” I WANT TO MADE THE NEW SKETCH ABOUT MOON AND JUPITER!”.

  1. Giorgio,

    I am completely amazed. You have outdone yourself. Stunning beautiful capture. The sketch seems to be floating above the page.
    Sketching does not get better than this!

    Frank 🙂

  2. Very very good sketch! A realistic view of the moon, it remaind me the old maps of the moon before the photo era.
