Again I used my 8 inch Apo at 120x. The moon stood low, which prevented me from seeing every tiny detail.

Hello Uwe,

Excellent sketch of the pair near the terminator. Other than in spring, the Moon can be a tough, low target when it is at waxing crescent phase.
Always a pleasure to see your lunar sketches.

Frank :)
