This evening the concentric dorsae at Mare Nectaris could be seen very contrasty. So I made a sketch with my 15cm-Maksutov@180. The large crater at the upper right side is Bohnenberger.

Uwe,

Very nice sketch of the eastern Mare Nectaris. That crater Bohnenberger is very showy in the right light and you have captured it wonderfully along with the nearby maria ridges.
Excellent Uwe! :bow:

Frank :)
