Dear observers,

yesterday Cleomedes and especially Burckhard catched my view. I sketched both while observing with my 6 inch Max @ 180x. The image is mirror reversed.

Interesting close up. Nice work. I tried the Moon last night but the clouds won.

Hello Uwe,

Beautiful captures of these fine craters.
I really like the way you blended those crater floors.
Looks really nice in graphite.

Frank :)

Hi Uwe, very nice and artistic result, I want to sketch them in a while.
From the distance this looks like a martian holding a duck head. ;)
