Very nice sketch. I'm assuming that north is up and that is crater Cruger with the dark floor at the top of Darwin. You captured that irregular floor of Darwin superbly.

Wonderful job on Darwin and the details in it! Keep them coming.

Nice field sketch of Darwin and Cruger. I just realized looking at your sketch that I was observing the terminators edge through my Nexstar 5i with the public outside a hall with a large costume party tonight and looking right at Darwin and Cruger. I have probably sketched them on the terminator before yet never in close detail. Nice to see this from you.
It inspires me to go back out now and try to capture it in a close-up to compare but the clouds keep coming and going.
Thanks for posting your sketch image in the moment!

@Frank: Yes, north ist up and east is left. Is missed to give the arrows, sorry.
The main crater is Darwin, the dark patch in the north is CrÃ¼ger B and the large dark area in the sout is called Lamarck, which is hard to see as a real crater because of its' demolition. In this light you see there is a crater, unfortunately without any detail.
