Sketching astronomical objects

This site is dedicated to my astronomical drawings. Sketching deep-sky objects helps to improve observing skills.
Over time - my technique should become better...

We optimized the maps for use with an 8x50 finding scope. Here you can read why we did so. Please visit the Review of all 9m0 maps page for more information about the rev and new labels.

Some useful resources are: a legend for the 9m0 star maps (including circle templates for finder scopes),  a guide on how to print the maps and a constellation list with their highest altitudes for best observation time of the year.

Use the 6m5 star atlas if you need overview charts for the maps. Clear skies!
