Waxing gibbous moon, Feb 7th
Posted 07 February 2014 - 05:19 PM
tonight just one hour after the cold front had passed, the clouds vanished and I could sketch the waxing gibbous moon through the 5" MAK.
Since the seeing was really poor, I decided not to magnify high today but instead go for a sketch of the complete moon with just a bit more than 90x.
This was the first time that I sketched the complete moon and not just single craters. Hope you like it...

This is an excellent capture and a great idea when the seeing prevents high power.
I like this paper you are using too.

I really like your capture here and the effect the paper gives to your sketching. Nicely done.

Skectching the full disk of the moon (o.k. the half in this case) it not an easy task. Well done!
That's right! Congratulations! Great drawing!
