The start.......

So this is the start of my blog....
My goal and the idea for the blog comes from wanting to sketch all 110 Messier objects and store/display them on the interweb along with a written report for each object that will hopefully serve as a diary.

The only restraints I have towards this blog and sketching are work commitments, I work two weeks on/two off so at least for the summer months sketches may be few and far between but eventually I'II get there. :)

It would also be good to hear any thoughts you have so please leave a comment if you have the time.


  1. This is amazing. Thanks so much for doing this. I have my first big dob coming soon and lots of dark sky. I'm going to use your sketches as a reference to make sure I'm looking at what I think I'm looking at.

    1. Thanks for the comment. :)
      For me observing got really exciting as soon as I moved to a 12" because that was when globs could be resolved and galaxies started showing structure, moving up to a 16" and going to dark skies to observe really makes those dark nights special!
      Best of luck with your new dob and let me know how you get on. :)
