The Virtual Moon Atlas and local weather forecasts helped me plan each day. I used a 4-inch f/9.8 refractor on an LXD75 mount for all the observations with the exception of the first February sketch, where I chose binoculars on a tripod. Magnification was 50x, and I incorporated a 13-percent-transmission filter for the majority of my observations.
My sketch kit consisted of black Strathmore Artagain paper, a white Conte crayon, a white charcoal pencil, a black Derwent charcoal pencil, a black woodless oil pencil, and a blending stump. Once the lunation was complete, I scanned and processed my results in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
Then I created the animation, also in CS6. To represent standard lunar orientation, I flipped and rotated the sketches. I also made gamma correction and exposure adjustments to improve contrast and stray markings, plus I removed my notations.
I hope you enjoy the result!
