Hi all,

here is todays Gassendi. Sketching was a little difficult because of the plenty details in Gassendi and the seeing was not good due to the haze.

I observed with an ED 120/900 at 225x.

Cai,

You have beautifully captured the appearance of this great floor fractured crater. Do revisit this one again under different lighting; this crater always gives a pleasing view for sketching. :bow: :rainbow: :cool:

Frank :)

Hi all,

thank you very much!
Yes, I will sketch him at a different light. Should be an interesting comparison.

Not only are you an excellent imager, but you're an excellent sketcher as well! :D Great job done on a difficult target.
