Although it was a rather flat lunar scene (very little shadow) and perhaps a day late from ideal observing for Rupes Recta, it was nevertheless pleasing to see the Wall.

Chris,

It looks like a fine hairline. Always good to see straight wall in most any light.
Very fine capture.

Frank :)

Very nice drawing, Chris! It's a nice change to see a much brighter impression than the usual moon sketches. Much more like we see it through the eyepiece, although obviously you chose a brighter part of the moon. Very well done!

Fine sketch! I don't know why, but for one reason or another the labeled version looks more attractive than the first sketch :question:
