It looks great. Nice sketching work.
It seems you are using more gray shades than you have in the past. Is that a fair assessment?
A 3" refractor is plenty of scope for sketching the Moon.

I started sketching the Moon with a white pencil (a little bit harder than a pastel pencil) but found it difficult to create the right gray scale. Now I work with different pastel pencils and it makes for me the Moon much more easy to sketch: Conté pastel 1355 n° 13 (white), n° 20 (light gray), n°33 (gray) and n°42 (dark gray). For black I use no pastel but a Conté Pierre Noire 1710 HB.

Nice clean refined work once again. You DO have a very successful style Jef - it conveys the experience rewardingly for other moon observers.

I'm no artist at all and never practice at home... So the most important reason for my progress in moonsketching is: material! I can warmly advise the use of different white/gray pastels instead of only one white pastel pencil.

Very nice sketch as always. You recoded a lot of fine detail.
