I looked at the moon this night to deciede what to sketch. I selected Gutenberg with its exceptional outline. Time was 19:45 UT at May 7th. I used my 6 inch Mak at 144x. The image is mirror reversed.

Uwe,

Excellent, you picked a fine crater to sketch and it looks great.
You now have a large collection of fine lunar targets sketched.

Frank :)

Uwe,

An outstanding observation of the crater Gutenberg. You have captured the walls/terraces and floor detail very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Uwe,

Nice work on this interesting target. Gutenberg has such a remarkable shape--no wonder it caught your eye. This crater is on my must-do list.
