Hi all,

Here's one of the two lunar sketches that appeared in the US June 2016 edition of Sky & Telescope, Magnius.

This piece was one of four done on four consecutive nights - a stretch of nights and sketching that I haven't done before. And three of these nights threw up good seeing, particularly for Magnius, and the fourth required a bit of magnification compromise, which proved a great experience too.

You'll find a more extensive write up on Magnius in my astro sketching blog - a link to it is in my signature.

Object: Magnius & surrounds
Scope: C8, 8" SCT
Gear: 5mm Hyperion, 400X
Date: 19th December, 2015
