Clavius complex - 225 km diameter, contains 18 craters. Amazing chain with 6 craters inside made like in purpose...

S1mas,

This is an impressive sketch of a beautiful target. It takes a little bit of time to sketch and shadow those craters and features and you have done a masterful job. :cool: :rainbow: :bow:
Thanks for posting.

Frank :)

Simas
Do you ever sleep? You make so much beautiful sketches!!! Deepsky, sun and now the moon. I never dared to sketch Clavius because it is so complex. But you did a very nice job. Keep them coming those sketches!
