June 6th Presentation: Astronomical Sketching

Astronomical Sketching
Our Speaker: Howard Banich

“Sketching at the eyepiece is a time-honored means of disciplining the observer’s vision to see all that’s detecatable on a given night”

Howard Banich made his first astronomical sketch in 1973. He will describe his process from the first rough sketches to the smoothly finished drawings published in Sky & Telescope.
