About

Living outside Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden I have been an active amateur astronomer since 2008. I prefer visual observations and as a habit I sketch the objects I observe. I started out as an deep sky observer, later to become interested in comets. Presently I tend to favor lunar observations.

My two main instruments are a 16″ dobsonian from Guang Sheng Optical and a 10″ dobsonian from SkyWatcher. The larger scope is mostly used for deep sky observations, and the lesser for planets, comets, and the moon. To make myself mobile I also have a 127 mm Mak also from SkyWatcher , and a 66 mm refractor from William Optics.

In this blog I will post sketches from my observations.

Feel free to comment both in English and in Swedish.

  1. Excellent idea, I like to see more of you drawings – and to hear more about astronomical drawing in Sweden. /Klaus
