I do not have a drive on my telescope so I move it with my head or my free hand, my knee or what ever it takes to follow my target over the time I am attempting to capture it in a sketch. I had been finding it difficult to distinguish the grey tones in the dark and have taken to using a candle in a storm lamp just to choose my colours.
How To Draw Down the Moon
I keep it at my feet and just hold the pastels or conte down to it to see what I am picking. Sometimes I use a headlight especially if I am doing fine details.
I have done most of my best work using it and found it a great addition. My way of going about lunar sketching is about layering and or removing pastel or conte crayon.

Some water colour pencils are very hard if not used as they are meant to be used.
