Saturn – March 3, 2013

Hello friends of the planets,

yesterday the weather was the first time very good. And the night was great. After many deep-sky-impressions I waited for Saturn and the air was as good as possible.

It is my first Saturn sketch in 2013 and I sketched the ring-planet without any helps. So I need about 20 minutes for the ring system only. It is very hard to sketch it quite well and it needs little work in the warm living room after the session. ;)

Location: Germany, near Tauberbischofsheim
Altitude: 360m over sea level
Temperature: – 4°C
Air: very good
Telescope: TMB 115/805 on Vixen SXD Mount 160x- 200x
