Last week, I went up to the rooftop of our apartment with 80mm refractor.
I found this small topography, and drew it.

An excellent observation of Capuanus. You have recorded the walls and shadows of this small crater very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all. I look forward to your future observations.

I like the way of your shadowing. Very plastic!
Small(er) craters are worth sketching too.

I like the way of your shadowing.
I agree with Uwe, as well as other comments about your sketching style. It easily has a 3-dimensional feel.
You used an 80mm scope at only 80x to capture such detail on a relatively small crater. You obviously have a keen eye for detail, as well as an excellent scope and eyepiece.
Keep up the great work!
