This night the air wasquite steady so I could us at least a medium magnification. At my 8 cm Apo I sketched Eudoxus with 134x. The image is mirror reversed.

Uwe,

Very nice sketch of crater Eudoxus. You caught it close to the terminator and the shadows give your sketch great depth.
Fine work Uwe.

Frank :)

Fine sketch! Looks like the weather in Germany was better last week than in Belgium. I hope I can sketch the Moon one of these days (because it's a long time ago).

Thank you for your comments. I like the 3d effect too.
