i have done a sketch of comet lovejoy....i had driven a little north and west of my home moonee beach to get away from coffs harbour light pollution and went to nana glen.my sketch was of naked eye though i did look through my binos as the comet is a ripper to see,it is from ground level up into crux say 30 to 35 degress trying to get as much in as possible.this is my third sketch iv'e attempted so i tried to get the milkyway in as well to give some perspective of how big the comet's tail has become.
the sketch had taken around 45 minutes to complete and i was very nervous trying to sketch it and to keep things in proportion.hope you enjoy my sketch it's a path i wish to take in astronomy.....
