We have a period of calm clear weather at the time. Sunday evening, less than 24 before full moon, I sketche the pair of craters. I used my 8 cm Apo at 96x this time. The image is mirror reversed.

Uwe,

I like the looks of this pair, close enough to the limb to show much foreshortening.
More nice sketching work my friend.

Frank :)
