Astronomical Sketching General Meeting
Wednesday, 3 May 2017 8:00 PM
Astronomical sketching at the telescope has long been relegated to a quaint pre-photgraphic past. Why would anyone bother to sketch what is seen with a telescope these days? A small but growing cadre of observers are however returning to this old art and are reclaiming a lost satisfaction in carefully peering through the eyepiece and with pencils, smudge stubs and brushes translating what they see on to cartridge paper. Martin Lewicki will show how.
