Hi Alex, just found your blog, Gondwana telescopes, your article on the Mellish technique and more! Ill take some time to read through it all properly and give some of the techniques a go. I'm using the method described in Jeremy Perez's YouTube post, and the biggest problem, aside from not putting too much weight and getting the right angle on the shading stump) has been inverting the scanned image (the scanner picks up all the lumps and bumps on the page as well as the markings). Might need a different scan setting, better paper or a different tool in GIMP.... Or get some black paper and embrace Mellish :-)
