This site is about sketching astronomical deep-sky objects. The observation blog lists sketches chronologically allowing to observe improvements over time. Use the sketch galleries for browsing drawings.


The self made section contains some articles with construction advice for astronomical equipment. The low cost star tracking EQ platform is an essential tool when it comes to drawing astronomical sketches.


A bunch of high quality free PDF star maps, licensed under a creative commons are available for download. Those who are interested in the process of sky chart creation, should have a look at StarMapStudio. Last updates and the newest maps are listed on the Star maps - Latest new page.

Clear skies!
