    Default Processed Sketches



    These are the digitally enhanced sketches from an earlier thread I had started, I feel these give a much better immage of what was observed that night and the size of the sketch is much closer to original.

    Great point.. I will cross reference this thread with this one: 1st Post - Need Help w/ Realistic Expectations for 10" Dob

    .. nothing better than sketches to acurately describe visual observation IMO.
