Yesterday evening I had the chance to sketch the pair. I could only use around 70x with my 8 cm Apo. The moon stood too low, the air there was'nt very steady.
The image is mirror reversed.

Uwe, your excellent sketch conveys a lot of information, with a fluent economy of line that captures the essence of a good observation and drawing made at the eyepiece. Thanks for sharing! :refractor::ubetcha:

Uwe,

Very fine capture of the pair. You are generating some excellent lunar sketches as of late. Glad to see your skies are clearing in recent days.

Frank :)
