Last night this region was on the sunrise side of the terminator and sky conditions were above average.
This sketch is centered on lava flooded crater Kies (44 km.) and adjacent dome Kies Pi with its little summit pit or impact crater whichever it is. The crater to the northwest of Kies (lower right) is crater Kӧnig (23 km.). The two craters in the 20 kilometer diameter range below Kies are Bullialdus B and A.
The entire region presented a pleasant view at the eyepiece.
For this sketch I used: black Strathmore 400 Artagain paper, 7”x 9”, white and black Conte’pastel pencils, white pearl eraser and blending stumps.
