Art and science meet in my adventures in sketching astronomical objects. Here I detail my travels across Australia with my telescopes, and from home, the people I meet and the technical challenges I encounter. From our closest neighbour, the Moon, to the furthest galaxies. From the seemingly trivial to the mind bending complex. All is fair game for my sketch pad. And continuing the tradition of The Mellish Technique.

Omega Centauri - Behold the King
I have not had an opportunity recently to make a new piece recently. This sketch of Omega Centauri was created in 2011. A write up on Omega can be found in the Gallery of astronomy art pieces
