Today I was much luckier with the steadiness of sky and decided to sketch Cichus and its surroundings. I used my 8 cm Apo at 137x. The image is mirror reversed.

Great shadow contrast. Always fun to see your close in crater captures.

Thank you for your comments! We had some clear nights here in Germany and I could make some sketches.
