Dear observers,

this night I had the chance to see Phocyclides in interesting light. The time of skecthing the shadows was 20:15 UT. I used my 6 inch Mak at 144x.

Uwe,

I really like your capture of Phocyclides with its worn and eroded outer wall. Nicely captured.

Uwe,

Ah! That union between Phocyclides and Nasmyth is an interesting and unique one. I really like the shadows there during waxing gibbous. This is a beautiful drawing--great shadows.
Nice work Uwe. :bow: :cool: :rainbow:

Frank :)

Very nice sketch with interesting light in the crater Phocyclides. :bow: :bow: :bow: I wish I could have seen this last night. We have had constant clouds and rain in Portland for the past week :cloudy:

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Phocyclides. You have captured the floor detail and shadows very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Very nice sketch of an area that I posted about.
See:
"Interesting Phocylides and Nasmyth feature
#3374429 - 10/06/09 12:20 PM" in the Lunar Observing forum.
The lighting will be similar to my post on 11/28/09.
Any sketches / observations near that date would be very welcome in my post.
