Can't help myself, this is getting exciting and challenging. I have an old known and new found respect for lunar sketchers.

Below is Kepler, I hope it looks like it.

Seeing was modest, not great. Magnification was 320x on 12 Feb 1600UT.

Thank you, guys. Jason, yea, expanding into some lunar observing...trying something new.

I wish I could have made the central peak appear more "rocky." It'll come...

Small craters are easy. :lol:

Hi Norme,

Yep, that's Kepler. The straight shadow in the crater kind of threw me off at first, but after doing a Google image search, I say that you got it spot on. That is Kepler.

Great sketch and quite inspiring!

:grin:
