How do you like the TMB Planetary II eyepiece when sketching the Moon?

To answer your question on the TMB II. I like it quite a bit. I prefer my one and only Televue Plossl but the TMB is a good eyepiece for $40.00 on sale from Astronomics. I have only a modest collection of eyepieces one 24mm Televue Panoptic (my favorite), the 5mm TMB, a 9mm Orion expanse, an 11mm Televue Plossl, A few Orion Plossls, and one 18mm Explore Scientific, and a 38mm Orion 2 inch. Both the ES and Orion are soft on the edges and the ES eyepiece shows an ugly yellow ring on the fringe ( for deep sky it is very nice.)
I would like to eventually get a few more TV Plossls or perhaps a 6mm ortho for planets and the Moon. Maybe even some day a Delos or Nagler when my budget allows. But, for the money the TMB does a nice job comparing with what I have in my case.

I always see so much on the Moon. It really is such an amazing object. I started working on the Lunar 100 and I am still learning. Thanks for the encouragement.

Excellent sketch of the strong men. You get better with each sketch.
