Your sketch of Euclides and Montes Riphaeus looks great. You caught the features a little closer to the terminator than I did and your sketch is orientated north up. Shadowing is very nice and you have given it a great 3-D look. :bow: :rainbow:



Thank you again.:thanx:

Frank :)

Wonderful that APOD posted your image, so very well done and deserving. I'm going after Aristotles and Eudoxus tomorrow night starting at twilight, thanks Frank for the suggestion.


Your 3-D capture in your image is tremendous.

Frank and Jay
Thanks for the kind words. I looked at internet for the special Moon I saw. It was a Corona! It is caused by waterclouds and not iceclouds.

@ Jay: Good luck with sketching te Moon!
