This evening I had the chance to sketch the craters Bullialdus & Lubiniezky at quite calm air. Instrument was my 6 inch Mak at 144x, time was 19:15 UT.

Uwe,

An excellent osbervation of Bullialdus and Lubiniezky. This is one of your best lunar observations to date. You have captured the walls and shadows of the craters very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Dear Carlos,

I am experimenting with a slightly new sketching method which gives the highlights more prominence. I am glad to see that you remarked a difference.
