Both large craters hit my view and I begun to sketch. Instrument was my 8 cm Apo at 96x. The image is mirror reversed (Oct. 19th, 21:50 UT)

Thank you Uwe. I've got to get up the courage to try graphite. I've tried charcoals and always, always mess it up.

Hello Uwe,

You caught them at a very favorable time and lunar libration, congratulations.
The sketch looks great. I like the paper too.

Frank :)

My son gifted me two years ago an observation book which has this paper:

Very interesting sketch Uwe! There's a lot of details in it. Graphite pencils seems to be quite powerful in your hand. I should try that one of these evening!

Thanks for sharing!

Jean
