Rich,

Beautifully composed 3 hour sketch. Just amazing you could stay on this task so long. The result is stupendous and so is the narrative. You have really been missed in these parts, KraterKid. :bow: It is so good you have returned.:waytogo:

Frank :)

Rich,

An excellent observation and report of this interesting lunar tritych (a work of art consisting of three panels). The age (and younger craters) of this region is apparent. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Rich,

What a wonderful result! I have to agree, three hours sketching is tremendous in terms of being on task. I love your details and your sketch truly captures the feeling of looking through the scope. Wonderful job!
