We finally got a clear warm night. Lots to see on the Moon tonight. Sketched Crater Gassendi and surrounding area. Just so much to see in this area. I used my 8 inch reflector at 240x.

Ken,

Very nice sketching of the environs of Crater Gassendi.
You have captured it beautifully right there on the shore of Mare Humorum.

Frank :)

Fine sketch. You can try to darken the background in PS.

Thanks Frank and Jef,
I have to do some editing. I think the iPhone washed out the terminator.
