This evening I observed the low and not so steady moon. Though an interesting formation I saw neither a sketch nor a photograph of it.

Uwe,

An excellent observation of C. Mayer. You have captured the walls and shadows very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Uwe,

Very nice work on this crater. Not a real large crater but is does stand out nicely near 1st quarter moon.
Shadow and rim illumination beautifully done. :bow: :cool: :rainbow:

Frank :)
