    Default Skaven's Sketching-M40 Certificate Application



    Hi, folks! I counted the sketches in my 2012+2013 log books, and the total is around 52 or so, so it looks like I qualify for the M40 sketching award! The following three PDFs contain the pages of my logbooks.

    First half 2012:

    M30.pdf

    Second half 2013:

    M70_2012.pdf

    First half 2013:

    M70_2013.pdf

    Not all pages have sketches. And unfortunately, the scanning process washed out many of the sketches (not that they were that great to begin with). Hopefully this is still sufficient to earn the award.

    The purpose of the sketching is to record what you see and you've done that with flying colours! Nice logs BTW, well organized.

    Very nice! I look forward to doing something similar to catalog all of the Messier objects that I can find.
