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.

Uwe,

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

Frank :)

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