The second study on the morning of 7/9/09 @ 1:00 AM - clear skies, moon in a Southern location. This was the first time I noticed the following star, I didn't include the star in my 12x12 study. The first study, my moon had a thin cloud veil so the normal halo was only a soft glow. I use Ivory black with all colours in my normal palette. The object of the studies, to learn about nocturnal colouring.
