Again a clear night! Waiting for Jupiter to come higher in the sky I sketched the moon (getting lower). Fracastorius very near the limb atrracted my view. I used my 8 cm refractor at 120x. The image is mirror reversed.

Uwe,

You had a wonderful view. That is a much better view than I have ever seen on this great tilted crater. I never seem to catch it.
Excellent sketch.

Frank :)

Uwe,

Excellent sketch.
Crater Fracastorius is an exciting challenge. I once drew. It was an exciting job ...
