Another clear night ( one could get used to this ). Sunset over Mare Crisium....so beautiful. The shadows were changing fast so this is just a sketch of part of the southern shore of the mare including Promontorium Agarum, which was strikingly illuminated. Done using a Celestron 90mm Backpacker Mak-Cass that is not made anymore, but oh so portable, 250X. Transparency was excellent, seeing good.
