Some of the vector illustrations I've made over the years, and continue to craft, for my introductory astronomy courses. Some are simple, some are more sophisticated, and I merely peek over the ankles of giants. Most of the illustrations shown in a scalable vector grapics (svg) format; click to get a vector graphics pdf version.
