Near full moon it is hard to find a rewarding target. The partial flooded Eddington is such a crater. I sketched it with my 6 inch Mak at 144x. Time was 20:35 UT.

Uwe,

This is a great crater to sketch in this light. The lava breaching through the wall and flooding the floor and partially burying the wall is iconic.
Beautiful work on this one.

Frank :)

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Eddington. You have recorded delicate detail across the floor of the crater. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Uwe,

Nice sketch. I really like the way the floor is shaded. Along with that, the way you drew the bright western rim and the broken eastern rim give the crater depth. :waytogo:
